Notes and Editorial Reviews

After receiving degrees from both the Mozarteum University Salzburg and the Hanns Eisler Hochschule in Berlin, Sergey Malov went on to win major competitions on two instruments: the violin (Heifetz 2008, 2010, 2001) and the viola (Tokyo 2010). His interest in historically informed performance practices led him to study the Baroque violin and more recently the violoncello da spalla. Today he successfully combines all these instruments in recitals, concerts, and recordings. Malov has already collaborated as a soloist with known orchestras such as the London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, Tokyo Philharmonic, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Helsinki Philharmonic, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg, and the Read more Akademie fur alte Musik Berlin. 13 Strings is his new exciting project. For the very first time, Sergey Malov brings Johann Sebastian Bach's Chaconne in D Minor together with György Ligeti's atonal Chaconne chromatique, two pieces that could hardly be more different upon first hearing them; while playing them, he discovers the breathtaking connection between the solo pieces, which he play son three instruments: a Baroque violin, a modern viola and a five-stringed ''violoncello da spalla''.
