In 1986 he began a career both as a soloist and as a chamber musician, performing in prestigious concert halls such as the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Bunka Kaikan in Tokyo and the Lincoln Center in New York. In 1992, he was invited by Philippe Herreweghe to become concertmaster of the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, a position he still holds today, as well as collaborating as first violin with various orchestras: the WDR in Cologne, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and others. He was first violin in the Turner String Quartet, with which he carried out an intense concert and recording activity until 2005. Extremely passionate about music philology, he has always carried out a parallel activity between the modern violin and the ancient instrument, collaborating with great artists such as Frans Brüggen, Sigiswald Kujken, René Jacobs, Anner Bijlsma, Christophe Coin, Andreas Staier. In 1996, driven by his passion for pedagogy, he created the Jeune Orchestre Atlantique (JOA) together with Philippe Herreweghe. From 2004 to 2010 he taught at the Academie de Musique Française in Kyoto. Since 2011, he has been professor of violin at the Conservatorio Superiore di Gent in Belgium and since 2017 at the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano.
