The CD Persian Art Music CD „Didar – Live in Berlin“ with Majid Derakhshani (Composition, Tar, Voice), Thea Nielsen (Flute) and Amir Abbas Zare (Daf) is one of his ventures discovering new horizons. His DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON recording of Schubert's "Winterreise" in Ludger Vollmer's arrangement for viola (Richard Yongjae O'Neill) and two guitars topped the South Korean Classical Charts for three months after its release in early October 2007.
