YCAT is delighted to announce that horn player Ben Goldscheider is joining Askonas Holt's roster for general management.
Nominated by the Barbican as an ECHO Rising Star, during the 2021/22 season Ben gives recitals at concert halls across Europe including the Concertgebouw, Musikverein, Elbphilharmonie and Koln Philharmonie, including an especially commissioned new work by Mark Simpson.

This Autumn, Ben made his debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican performing Ruth Gipps Concerto and will debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in April conducted by Edward Gardner at the Royal Festival Hall performing the Knussen Concerto. 

Over the last year, Ben has appeared at the Wigmore Hall, Aldeburgh Festival and Leeds Lieder and performed Ligeti’s Trio at the Pierre Boulez Saal. He has collaborated with Daniel Barenboim, Stephen Hough, Tom Poster, Sunwook Kim, James Baillieu, Allan Clayton and the Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective. A keen advocate for new music, he recorded works for horn and electronics for the Aberdeen Sounds New Festival broadcast by Radio 3. He was a prize-winner at the 2019 Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) International Auditions, receiving invaluable early-stage career management. 

2021 also saw the release of 'Legacy: A Tribute to Dennis Brain' on Three Worlds Records with newly commissioned works by Huw Watkins and Roxanna Panufnik. A solo concerto recording with the Philharmonia Orchestra is due for release in 2022. 

In 2016, Ben was a Concerto Finalist in the BBC Young Musician Competition.

He will be managed at Askonas Holt by Ollie Haines and Edward Pascall.
