As a winner of the Park Lane Awards, he gave a recital at the Purcell Room on London's South Bank. Three years later he won the Andres Segovia International Competition in Spain at twenty-two.

Over the years, there have been many BBC Radio 3 programmes, including live broadcasts from the NTL Studio in Belfast, the Wigmore Hall as well as from Broadcasting House. He has been a member of the Lontano Ensemble specialising in contemporary music. Paul has been invited as a soloist to most parts of the world including the Americas and Hong-Kong.
