"The great thing about having a showcase at Classical:NEXT is that I could arrange everything for my performance exactly as I wanted to have it, from the programme to the question of which clothes to wear
Pianist and 2014 showcase artist Hiroaki Takenouchi (Japan)
"Immediately after my presentation, several representatives approached me and throughout the day some even suggested concrete deals for international appearances of our contemporary music ensemble. It is amazing how much business one man alone can do thanks to this video showcase format."
John Harris, Chief Executive and Artistic Co-Director of Red Note Ensemble, Scotland
