His career has been shaped by collaborations with conductors such as Lorin Maazel, Mariss Jansons, Kent Nagano and Horst Stein to name only a few. He has performed on a number of occasions as soloist with the Nationaltheaterorchester Mannheim and in chamber concerts and gave his debut in Romania in 2015 with the Filarmonica George Enescu in Bucharest in the concert hall Ateneul Roman.
