He appears in major concert venues around the world and has developed a special reputation for playing and directing, collaborating with the soloists of the Berlin Philharmonic among others, and in particular with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, with which he has performed extensively and recorded a disc featuring Mozart’s G major and D minor concerti. An exclusive artist with Virgin Classics since 2000, he received the Classic FM Gramophone Award in 2006 for best instrumental disc for his recording of Szymanowski’s solo piano works. The intensity and originality of his interpretations have been recognized in several high profile awards. In April 2002 he received the prestigious Gilmore Award given every 4 years to a pianist of exceptional talent and in 2001 he was the recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Best Instrumentalist Award.
