Founded in 2015 by Anastasia Boudanoque, Primavera Consulting focuses on producing high-end classical entertainment events and consulting performing arts organizations all over the world. Additionally, Primavera represents a small roster of artists, reinforcing traditional talent management with digital and social media, endorsement opportunities, as well as educational, charitable, and cultural diplomacy initiatives.
Ms. Boudanoque has been involved in the careers of some of the most compelling performers of our time including Lang Lang, Ray Chen, Mischa Maisky, Long Yu, Olga Peretyatko, Julian Rachlin, Daniel Harding, Maxim Vengerov, Robert Trevino, Tan Dun, and Rudolf Buchbinder. As a producer, under the auspices of Columbia Artists (CAMI Music), Ms. Boudanoque organized the 2010 AsianGames Festival in Guangzhou, bringing together Yo-Yo Ma, Midori, Sarah Chang, Myung-Whun Chung and the Seoul Philharmonic for an unprecedented musical summit. Her producing credits also include the historic performances of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra in Manhattan's Central Park, celebrating the World Expo 2010, and at the UN General Assembly in 2015, commemorating the 70th anniversary of Allied Powers’ victory over nazism. She has produced five Chinese New Year Gala concerts at Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic and brought the Moscow Sretensky Monastery Choir to Beijing for a rare concert of sacred music at the Forbidden City. Ms. Boudanoque has arranged for some these events to be broadcast internationally, increasing their audience to hundreds of thousands.
Ms. Boudanoque is currently producing her second documentary. Forte profiles three women who are challenging classical music industry norms by setting their own definition and criteria for success in a genre steeped in tradition. Filmed in eleven international locations, Forte is in post-production and is anticipating an early 2019 release.
Ms. Boudanoque served on the board of the Shanghai Orchestra Academy, which she helped establish as a partnership between the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, and the Shanghai Conservatory. In 2008, she spearheaded the creation and launch of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation.
Prior to her tenure at Columbia Artists, Ms. Boudanoque ran the comprehensive arts program of the British Council in St. Petersburg and collaborated with IMG Artists as an independent producer. She graduated with honors from the St. Petersburg State University where she earned a Specialist degree in International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy.
