Among his recent engagements are solo recitals in New York (a series of six recitals at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall between 2004 and 2012, and recitals at the Goethe Institute and Bargemusic), San Francisco, Berlin, Paris, Ghent, Seoul, Busan, Taipei and Kyoto, and at the Schoenberg Festival in Vienna and the Piano Spheres series in Los Angeles.
