Since then, he has performed with great success at New York’s Carnegie Hall and at the U.K. Proms, He has received great acclaim for his regular recitals at many of the world’s most prestigious venues, including the Wiener Musikverein, the Berliner Philharmonie, and the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris.
