About Us

Stephen Lumsden
Managing Director

Intermusica is one of the leading international agencies in the field of classical music, representing some of the foremost conductors, instrumentalists, singers and stage directors as well as composers and orchestras from around the globe. Founded in 1981 by Stephen Lumsden, we are motivated by a passion for music in all its forms and a commitment to creative partnership with all sides of the music world whether in building careers, promoting concerts or putting together high-level series, festivals, special tours and projects as well as bespoke media initiatives.

ARTISTS have been the foundation of our work since the very beginning. Representing many of the world's foremost conductors, instrumentalists, string quartets and vocal groups, Intermusica takes pride in its artists, cares for all their wide-ranging activities and strives to create the best circumstances for them to develop their work. With a strong eye on the need for imaginative and innovative programming wherever possible, our work also encompasses a commitment to a wide range of music from the baroque to the contemporary.

VOCAL & OPERA offers personal management to a select group of singers and stage directors ranging from established international performers to some of the most exciting young talent on the operatic stage. We especially aim to integrate the activities of the new department with the existing work of the company to develop fruitful and exciting partnerships in a highly-challenging environment that requires careful and creative career-planning.

COMPOSERS represent the cutting edge of our activities. A commitment to living composers involves us in the creation process of new music, advising composers on the writing of new works, bringing about the best possible performance possibilities for those new commissions and ensuring that their music is heard by the widest possible audience around the globe. We also create special festivals and events around our composers' work.

TOURS around the globe are an enormously important part of our business. This includes the development of international touring plans for major international orchestras across Europe, North and South America, Japan and the Far East as well as Australasia. Many of the world's finest orchestras work with Intermusica in various territories and we pride ourselves on not only the creative planning that goes into touring but also in trying to deliver a personalised and full service to our partner orchestras.

PROJECTS brings together all strands of our business into one unifying and purposeful hand. With a priority to create projects marrying our artists, orchestras and groups with the leading festivals and concert presenters around the world, Intermusica has achieved notable success in the creation of events that have a strong artistic vision coupled to conceptual reality. We also work with other major international figures from the music world who appreciate our approach to project creation and development.

PROMOTIONS are equally important to us and provide us with another important view on the concert world. Taking the risk to present our own concerts is a key part of our philosophy going back to the beginning of our existence. Presenting major orchestras, artists and chamber groups in London and abroad affords us the most direct opportunity to influence positively our clients' work and to create events in-house that become successful for both the artists and public alike.
