"Yesterday, to judge from the tumultuous ovation that followed his dazzling performance of Chopin's opus 28 Preludes, free of both perfume and rhetoric, then history repeated itself.

Last summer he made his Proms debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jiri Belohlavek, opened the Queen's Hall series at the Edinburgh Festival and appeared with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields at the Barbican's Mostly Mozart Festival. This year he returns to the Edinburgh International Festival for the fourth time appearing with the Minnesota Symphony Orchestra conducted by Osmo Vanska.
