He was a recipient of many international rewards and prizes of conducting, including such as: the Hans Haring First International Prize (Salzburg 1982); Second Prize in the International Besançon Competition for Young Conductors in 1984; Václav Talich Competition Prague, Prize Winner in 1985; and Second Prize in Grzegorz Fitelberg Competition in Katowice in 1987. Those many rewards brought him international acclaim and keeps him extremely busy, since many symphony orchestras and opera theatres around the world invited him either to be their guest conductor or even become their visiting music director.
