His future Proms appearances are scheduled for upcoming post-COVID seasons.

In 2009 he made an acclaimed recording of the complete Prokofiev Concertos with Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Sydney Symphony which was recorded live at the Sydney Opera House. In addition to the Prokofiev cycle, he has recorded recital discs of works by Rachmaninov, Schumann, Scriabin, Mussorgsky and Prokofiev. Reviewing his latest disc of works by Brahms and Liszt, Gramophone magazine raved “this album should be in every serious collector’s library.”
