Her concert performances have been enjoyed in Konzert Haus, Vienna, Paris’s Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Hamburgs’ Laeiszhalle and Philharmonie am Gasteig, Tonhalle in Düsseldorf, Moscow Philharmonic, Grafenegg Festival, Klassik am Dom Festival in Linz, Wigmore Hall London, Santa Cecilia in Rome and other concert houses around the world.
