Elsewhere, Kharitonov gave an electrifying performance at Carnegie Hall in 2013 as part of the Musical Olympus International Festival’s gala concert and has also appeared at the Annecy Classic and International de Colmar festivals in France. 

In early 2016 Kharitonov debuted with the China Philharmonic Orchestra, Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra and Orquestra Sinfônica Municipal de São Paulo to great critical acclaim and returned to Japan with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra under Pavel Kogan. Later this season Kharitonov will appear in recital at the Duszniki International Chopin Piano Festival, Schubertíada a Vilabertran and as part of the Scherzo Jóvenes Intérpretes series. Upcoming concert performances include his much anticipated debut with the London Chamber Orchestra under Vladimir Ashkenazy and a tour of China with the National Philharmonic of Russia under Vladimir Spivakov.
