He has paid great attention to the works of modern Slovak composers in his concert activities, which were often inspired by the works of Jozef Illéš. In addition to his solo performances, he has also played duos with other musicians – the outstanding French horn players, Ján Budzák and Miloš Števove. They performed at a number of concerts together, both at home and abroad, and recorded for Slovak Radio.
He established the Bratislava Wind Quintet, which kept the same formation during its 20-year existence. This ensemble also promoted the creation, premiere, and recording of many works by modern Slovak composers (almost 60 compositions, most of which were dedicated to the Quintet).
Along the lines of a Prague-based group, he established a fascinating French horn quartet – the Corni di Bratislava – with which he played at many concerts and recording sessions.
He is also a member of the Philharmonic Wind Octet, while his wide-ranging musical activities include cooperation with other orchestras and ensembles (the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra; the Slovak Chamber Orchestra; the State Chamber Orchestra and State Philharmonic in Košice; the State Opera in Banská Bystrica; the Stuttgart Wind Quintet; the Frankfurt Chamber Orchestra; the National Symphony Orchestra in Havana; the Vienna Wind Quintet, and others).
