Many other performances followed.

Daniel has won several awards including first prize at the 2010 International Music Competition Stockholm as well as at the 2011 12th Nutcracker International Television Contest for Young Musicians (Moscow) which is why he as a winner got the chance to play with the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall.
