IMG Artists are delighted to announce the signing of Constantin Trinks for General Management.
At a gala ceremony in Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie on 29th October 2017, Constantin Trinks will receive an ECHO Klassik award in the Symphonic Recording category (19th century) for his live recording of Hans Rott Symphony no.1 with the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchester (on Profil Edition Hänssler). Germany’s public TV channel ZDF will broadcast the ceremony later that evening.
A regular guest conductor with all the major European Opera houses, productions in 2017/18 include the Ring Trilogie (which was developed especially for the Theater an der Wien by Tatjana Gürbaca, Bettina Auer and Constantin Trinks, with ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien and the Arnold Schoenberg Choir – and which tells the story of the Ring from the perspective of the younger protagonists with the spotlight on Hagen, Siegfried and Brünnhilde), Cosi fan tutte and Arabella for Bayerische Staatsoper (the latter as part of the Munchner Opernfestspiele), Lohengrin for Prague National Theatre and Tristan und Isolde for Staatstheater Kassel.
Similarly active on the orchestral platform, he made his debut last season with the Bayerische Rundfunk and, following an acclaimed debut with the Munich Philharmonic in 2015/16, he conducted their New Year Beethoven 9 concerts in December 2016. Engagements this season include Wiener Symphoniker, Vancouver Symphony, Seoul Philharmonic, Orchestra Philharmonique de Radio France and the orchestra of Den Norske Opera.
Trinks will be managed by Jennifer Spencer in association with her own management company, Jennifer Spencer Artist Management.
Jennifer says: “I have long been an admirer of Constantin Trinks but, until recently, I wasn’t in the position to offer him management. I am therefore now delighted that he has decided to join my roster. His winning of the ECHO Klassik award for the Hans Rott Symphony is richly deserved and epitomises his fascination with lesser-known repertoire. ”
Trinks comments: “Jenny and I have now both talked and met a number of times and we had an instant rapport. Our ideas, our strategy for the future and our musical views are completely in sync and I am really looking forward to us working together”
