Gostuje i na festivalima (Carl Orff, Muzički biennale Zagreb, Zagrebačke ljetne večeri, Westfalen Classics), te stiče laskave kritike i nagrade: nakon debija u Washingtonu, tamošnja kritika hvalila je njegov „Introspektivni pristup i profinjen osjećaj za fraziranje“ (Washington Post). Interpretacijom Brahmsova Prvog klavirskog koncerta u d-molu zaslužio je nagradu Sveučilišnih nastavnika, a dobitnik je i Nagrade Milka Trnina Hrvatskog društva glazbenih umjetnika za 2013. godinu. Njegovi solistički i kamerni nastupi odlikuju se svestranim pristupom programima na koje ravnopravno uvrštava djela velikana pijanističkog repertoara – Bacha, Beethovena, Chopina, Liszta, Brahmsa, Schumanna – i hrvatskih kompozitora poput Šuleka, Papandopula, Kempfa, Paraća i drugih. Redovno snima za Hrvatski radio i televiziju; Snimio je i dva nosača zvuka sa djelima Liszta, Rahmanjinova, hrvatskih i latinoameričkih kompozitora.
