His many recordings have been highly praised, especially recent issues with Susan Graham (Reynaldo Hahn) Bernarda Fink (Schumann,Spanish Songs) Stephan Genz (Beethoven, Hugo Wolf) and Christopher Maltman (Songs of Travel). He has also directed highly-acclaimed Lieder series at both the Wigmore Hall and the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.

He has given masterclasses and workshops for singers and pianists in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Stockholm and Vienna as well as in the USA, Canada and Japan, and at the Royal College of Music in London, where he is currently Prince Consort Professor of Accompaniment.
