He has toured extensively with ONCT in Europe, Asia, the United Kingdom, and South America, and with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin in Europe. He has conducted London’s Philharmonia Orchestra every season since 2003, and has toured with them in Europe. He has appeared as a guest conductor with the Vienna Philharmonic at the Mozartwoche Festival, and Finnish Radio Symphony.
