Special projects include his life-long collaboration with the American composer Alvin Curran which resulted in a series of 6hour marathon performances of the piano cycle Inner Cities, a series that was released on a Long Distance classics/harmonia Mundi cd box.(2005) Other recording projects included the complete piano music of Gordon Mumma (2008 NWR) and his debut recording of the Ives Concord sonata (1996) which was met with rave reviews in the American press.
