WFIMC and IDAGIO announce new partnership2:02, 6th June 2019
The World Federation of International Music Competitions (WFIMC) has signed a principal partnership with classical music streaming service IDAGIO.
The partnership was agreed upon by IDAGIO founder and CEO Till Janczukowicz, and WFIMC secretary general Benjamin Woodroffe at IDAGIO’s Berlin HQ after commencing discussions in 2017. Following a recent presentation by Janczukowicz to the WFIMC General Assembly, IDAGIO is now formally recognised as WFIMC’s official audio streaming partner.
‘This partnership will allow the WFIMC to share the music and personalities of the laureates of our Member Competitions,’ explains Woodroffe. ‘IDAGIO’s commitment to classical music and excellence matches our own perfectly and there is a vast audience of young musicians that will enjoy using the IDAGIO platform to hear one another. The timing and shared values are right for us to jointly provide content and to reach IDAGIO’s growing audience.’
IDAGIO founder Janczukowicz commented: ‘From orchestra players, teachers and laureates to the Pollinis and Ageriches of tomorrow: future musicians are digital natives. Their challenges differ from those of the past. They need digital tools to share music, inspire fans and reach new audiences. A challenge and also a huge opportunity. IDAGIO is proud to provide competitions and laureates with a platform to reach audiences around the globe faster and easier than ever.’
