This season, his engagements have included a return to the Los Angeles Philharmonic and debuts with Seattle and Dallas Symphony Orchestras. He has appeared with the Munich Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Berlin Konzerthaus, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Hong Kong Philharmonic. Following his award-winning debut recital CD, Behzod released his first concerto disc in 2014 on Decca Classics.
