He has performed regularly as soloist with all of the BBC orchestras, the Philharmonia, Orchestre National de Lille, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, and many more. Much in demand as a chamber musician, Ashley is a frequent guest of international festivals such as Bath, Ako (Japan), Cheltenham, Mecklenburg, City of London, and Ravinia and Marlboro in the US, playing solo recitals and chamber works with musicians such as Mitsuko Uchida, Sarah Chang, Steven Isserlis, Richard Goode, and more.
