On June 11th 2009 EAS Musikmanagement GmbH, an artist agency based in Berlin (Germany) and meant to represent soloists and ensembles in the classical music world was born. EAS stands for the broader European Artistic Services – an arts organizations group (The EAS Group), thought from the very beginning to develop and expand during the years to come, creating different types of other arts organizations, directly and indirectly connected to the agency.
EAS Musikmanagement started off in 2009 representing pianists, violinists and string quartets, either in general management or in local management combining the German speaking countries with Eastern Europe, France and Spain. In 2016 a new local management conductors-division was added. At this day the agency works closely, mostly in general management with a very selected number of soloists and conductors.
In January 2013 Andreea Butucariu co-founded the classical recording label eaSonus. The recordings released complemented the concert careers of the artists she represented. It also allowed certain artists with a great recording history to revisit certain repertoire, which they have previously already recorded. A PR division was created in order to support these releases. EAS believed that this circle (concerts/REC/Press/PR) needed to be completed in order to have all agendas under one roof and avoid that artists have to depend on three different companies with their own profiles and goals and very often quite different time-schedules. Every element in the circle feeded and supported the others, creating a wheel that turns by itself. After a decade of intense activity, and with new developments in the recording industry, the Label eaSonus was stopped came to the end of its existence. The CDs produced by eaSonus received great press reviews and many international prizes.
In 2014 Andreea Butucariu developed a Consulting scheme called Active Management Consulting. The goal was to help instrumentalists and students whom the EAS Musikmanagement is unable to take on and represent to understand how the music world functions and to help them come every day a step forward. The system consisted in recurring management master classes that advises, informs and directs clients to the ‘right’ doors. Additionally, she has been lecturing management students for several years now at the Instituto Complutense de Ciencias Musicales and recently she has started a new collaboration with the Centro Superior de Ensenanza Musical KATARINA GURSKA in Madrid, where she is in charge of the class Management and Promotion of the Interpreter/Soloist.
