In 2015, he released a recording of Henze’s massive Royal Winter Music that was nominated for best recording of the year by the Finnish Broadcasting Company and for Finland’s Emma Award. He teaches at the Sibelius Academy (Helsinki) and has given master classes in Finland, Brazil, Germany, Holland, Italy, Russia, the UK and the United States.
