Since then, she has gone on to a stellar career as an international concert pianist, writer and Professor of Piano at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. She made her professional debut aged nineteen in a tour with the Bournemouth Sinfonietta conducted by Simon Rattle. Since then she has performed as soloist at major concert halls throughout Britain, including the Barbican Concert Hall (with the London Mozart Players, conducted by Daniel Harding), Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room. She has also given recitals and concertos in over thirty countries in Western and Eastern Europe, the United States, Africa, Asia, and the Middle and Far East.
