The UK Premiere succeeded at the BBC Proms in London on 11th August 2011 with BBC Philharmonic Orchestra & Vassily Sinaiskyand the Dutch one at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in September 2011 with Netherlands Chamber Orchestra & Gordan Nikolic. In February 2012 Dejan performed this piece with the Residentie Orkest & Andrew Grams in The Hague and in Utrecht and on 2nd March he gave its Japanese Premiere in Sapporo with the Sapporo Symphony Orchestra & Tatsuya Shimono.

The German Premiere of the piece followed promptly at the ‘Ostertöne Festival’ in Hamburg on 9th April 2012 with Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra & Simone Young.

In spring 2013 Dejan performed this work also with Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra & Krzysztof Urbanski and in September 2013 he gave the South American premiere with Orquestra Sinfonica do Estado de Sao Paulo & Lawrence Foster.
