He performs regularly throughout the world with the leading orchestras and the world’s most distinguished conductors including Esa-Pekka Salonen, Sir Andrew Davis, Charles Dutoit, Franz Welser-Möst, Ilan Volkov, Tugan Sokhiev, Yakov Kreizberg, Yannick Nezet-Seguin, Libor Pešek, Sir Simon Rattle and Sir Charles Mackerras. 

He frequently appears as a recitalist and chamber musician, and in the former capacity has performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals including Washington’s Kennedy Center, the Wigmore Hall, the Aldeburgh Festival, Neues Gewandhaus, Frankfurt Alte Oper, Théâtre du Châtelet, Musée d’Orsay, Zürich Tonhalle, the BBC Proms, and the NHK and Orchard Halls in Japan.
