He founded the Trans-Siberian Art Festival in 2014 and, as artistic director, has commissioned works by Lera Auerbach, Sofia Gubaidulina, Arvo Pärt and Mark-Anthony Turnage. Closely involved in music education, he has given masterclasses at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and is an honorary professor at the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music and the Shanghai Conservatory of Music.
