He is the headmaster of the Paris Conservatory since September 2010.
Starting in 2010 he began an extended collaboration with the Paris Opera (premier of the ballet Siddharta during the first season, and an opera based on the life of Russian poet Anna Akhmatova in March 2011).
Upcoming projects include a work for the Ensemble Modern Orchestra conducted by Pierre Boulez, another for the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig with Riccardo Chailly, and a violin concerto dedicated to Renaud Capuçon. His works are published by Editions Henry Lemoine.
