‘I grew up in a very musical family and had many interests (for a long time I contemplated scientific studies), yet music always moved me on a deeper level. When I got my trial in the LSO, I was struck by the awesome level in the first rehearsal, the buzz was incredible. Since then, it continues to be a very exciting adventure.’

He performed Attahir’s Concerto Nur with the Orchestre de Lille and took part in the Aix-en-Provence Easter Festival with Renaud Capuçon. Previous solo highlights include recitals at the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston, the Morgan Library in New York and Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany.
