He has collaborated with artists ranging from Elton John, David Byrne, Robbie Williams Mark Ronson, Joni Mitchell to Burt Bacharach. His album “Rufus Does Judy,” recorded at Carnegie Hall in 2006, was nominated for a Grammy.

This summer it will be performed at the Armel Opera Festival in Hungary and the Augsburg Theatre in Germany. In 2015, Deutsche Grammaphon released a studio recording of the opera recorded with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
Rufus celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with the release of his latest album "Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets" on Deutsche Grammophon worldwide in Spring 2016.
