Well Tempered Productions offers a consultancy service for solo artists, chamber groups, orchestras, and arts organizations, tailored to local as well as international outreach.
Collaborative projects, concerts, video and audio production, image and repertoire development, and innovation in approach to the broader markets are some of the areas that we work in.
Creating the right promotion for any artist or organization requires an in depth understanding of how unique the classical music world is from within as well as with the world at large. Every individual artist and arts organization needs support in positioning themselves for exposure and audience expansion.
Well Tempered Productions is all about classical music—from presenting a concert series, festival, or one-time gala, we work in the promotion and creation of memorable musical events.

ARTISTS & PROJECTS
ALESSANDRO DELJAVAN, PIANO
Italian pianist Alessandro Deljavan has been astonishing audiences for more than two decades. Acknowledgements began at the age of nine when he won the prestigious Concours musical de France (1st Prize, Paris, 1996). He is embraced for his remarkable prowess and emotional intensity by audiences and colleagues alike.
“Deljavan played Chopin’s B minor Etude with jaw dropping virtuosity and heart-stopping eloquence.”
—Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News
A prolific recording artist, Alessandro Deljavan has more than 40 albums from the solo and chamber music repertoire.
Of his recent recording of the Chopin complete Études, Pizzicato.lu writes:
“Technically brilliant and with an exceptional imagination, Alessandro Deljavan brings finesse and spontaneity to Chopin’s Etudes.”
Some of the most recent releases (since 2015) include two albums of the complete Chopin Waltzes & Études (Brilliant Classics), the Complete Chopin Mazurkas (Aevea), the Complete Piano / String works of Taneyev (Aevea), the Complete Piano Works of Reynaldo Hahn (Aevea), the Complete Violin Sonatas of Edvard Grieg (Aevea), the Complete Works for Piano and Cello of Martucci (Tactus), Schumann Works for Piano (Academy / Artalinna), Bach Complete Little Preludes (Aevea), Bach: The Seven Toccatas (Piano Classics), and a double CD recording of works by Mompou (Brilliant Classics). In 2018 will be released an all Liszt album including the complete Mephisto Waltzes and the Sonata in B Minor and a recording of the Bach Goldberg Variations, both recorded in 9.1 surround at Tippet Rise, Fishtail, Montana.
“A concert which only confirms the genuine talent and colossal power of this Italian pianist who we’d like to hear more often in Brussels.”
—les chroniques du piano
The Grieg Complete Lyric Pieces (three hours / 66 tracks) released in March, 2018, has had more than 200,000 streams on Spotify in the first month. In nine months on Youtube, the complete Chopin Waltzes has more than 180,000 streams, and his recording of the Satie Gymnopedies have to date more than 5,000,000 streams on spotify.
“Deljavan’s performance was revelatory in every respect. Everyone in the hall knew that they were hearing something special—something wonderful—from the very first notes. At the end, the spontaneous eruption of cheers was so different from the perfunctory ovation that any decent performance is awarded, that being a part of the thrilled crowd was a unique experience in itself.”
—Gregory Sullivan Isaacs, Theater Jones

An extraordinary, passionate, and brilliant musician, as comfortable in the opera repertoire as the great symphonic literature—Marc-Olivier Oetterli, conductor and bass baritone.
HUMANS OF CLASSICAL MUSIC
During the past couple of years I have been working on the development of Mozart’s List, a site to serve the needs of the classical music community. The Mozart’s List site serves the panoply of people who are engaged in one way or another in this work we call classical music.
“Classical music is not about the ‘What’ but the ‘Who.’
The variety of people who work in the field of classical music is more diverse than most people realize. The mission of Humans of Classical Music is to explore the broader spectrum of what and who we think of as associated with classical music.

We are creating the future of classical music in this ever changing popular culture, so I started a publication to cover a myriad of subjects. Classical Culture is dedicated to advancing classical music in culture, education, cooperation, collaboration, and technology.

Introducing Mozart’s List, a haven for doing business in the field of classical music.
In an age where we are all so very connected and connectable, it occurred to me that there should be a place like Mozart’s List that would be devoted to the needs and ideas that make up the virtual landscape of all things classical music.
