Denis has performed as a soloist with many orchestras worldwide, including the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, the Moscow Philharmonic, the Prague Chamber Orchestra, the Ensemble of Tokyo, the Hiroshima Philharmonic, the Odense Symphony, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Ensemble of Paris, and the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, among others. He has annual solo recital tours to Japan, and performs frequently in recitals and concertos all over the world.
Denis’ first full-time orchestral position was as Principal Flute with the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra in Finland (2005-2008), where he also taught at the Tampere Conservatory of Music. In 2008, he was appointed Principal Flute with the Barcelona Symphony under Eiji Oue. Later that year he won the Principal Flute position in the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
