From 1978, he was a freelance artist, singing mostly in middle-class venues like Cologne, Nürnberg, Essen, Bern, Graz, Budapest, Nancy, Bologna, Lisbon, Portland or Milwaukee, but also at large theaters like the Vienna State Opera (4 performances), Barcelona, the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, the Opéra in Paris and the Salzburg Festival.
