In the meantime he has composed more than 10 works, most recently a sonatina in three movements (for violin and piano) and a two-part invention. He is currently working on a quartet for violin, viola, cello and piano.
In 2020 and 2021 he won a total of 40 international prizes in Germany, Poland, Russia, Latvia, Ukraine, Estonia, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Indonesia, Japan, Canada and the USA, some in age groups up to 12 years, always first to third prizes and special awards, including a total of 16 first prizes and one absolute prize.
