He has received multiple awards, including both Germany and France’s highest cultural honours, the Gold Medal of Merit from the National Society of Arts and Letters and the Yehudi Menuhin Prize for the Integration 
of Arts and Education. In 2016 he was made Life President of the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra in acknowledgment of outstanding contribution to the Oxford Piano Festival. He also holds four honorary doctorates. Recent orchestral engagements include performances with the Berlin Philharmonic,
