IMG Artists is delighted to welcome pianist James Baillieu to its roster for General Management. He will be represented by Isabella Pitman from the London office.

Described by The Daily Telegraph as “in a class of his own”, James Baillieu is one of the leading song and chamber music pianists of his generation.  He has given solo and chamber recitals throughout the world and collaborates with a wide range of singers and instrumentalists including Benjamin Appl, Jamie Barton, Ian Bostridge, Allan Clayton, Annette Dasch, Lise Davidsen, the Elias and Heath Quartets, Dame Kiri te Kanawa, Adam Walker, and Pretty Yende.  As a soloist, he has appeared with the Ulster Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, and the Wiener Kammersymphonie.

James is a frequent guest at many of the world’s most distinguished music centres including Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Vancouver Playhouse, Berlin Konzerthaus, Vienna Musikverein, the Barbican Centre, Wiener Konzerthaus, Bozar Brussels, Pierre Boulez Saal, Cologne Philharmonie, and the Laeiszhalle Hamburg.

Recent and forthcoming highlights of the 2022-23 season in Europe include recitals with Lise Davidsen at the Bergen International Festival, a European tour of an all-Hahn program with Veronique Gens, performances in the United Kingdom and Spain with violist Timothy Ridout, and a fully-produced staged presentation of Winterreise with Benjamin Appl at the Gran Teatre del Liceu. North American appearances include a recital with violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen in a program of C.P.E. Bach presented by San Francisco Performances, tour dates with baritone Benjamin Appl in Detroit, New York City, Portland, San Francisco, and Vancouver, and recitals with tenor Allan Clayton at the Park Avenue Armory, New York.

Baillieu said, “I’m thrilled to be continuing my relationship with the wonderful Isabella Pitman and joining the amazing family of IMG Artists. I’m looking forward to this new chapter immensely!”

Pitman said, “It’s such a pleasure to continue managing the brilliant James Baillieu at IMG Artists. James is not only a phenomenally talented artist but a fantastic person to work with. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store.”
