He quickly earned an international reputation for his genre-bending repertoire from Bach to Radiohead, and his commitment to communicating music in visionary ways through his artistic leadership and wide-ranging collaborations.As well as being a celebrated performer, he is recognized as an accomplished composer and curator, and was named a TED Senior Fellow in 2015.
