The violinist Sergey Malov from St. Petersburg is considered as versatile as he is virtuoso: he plays violin, viola, baroque violin and cello da spalla - the instrument on which Johann Sebastian Bach himself probably played his cello suites. His repertoire ranges from early Baroque music to Johann Sebastian Bach, from classical and romantic violin concertos to the world premieres of contemporary music. For his interpretations he deals intensively with questions of style and playing techniques of the respective epoch.
On the violin Sergey Malov won prizes at the Paganini Competition in Genoa, the Mozart Competition in Salzburg, the Heifetz Competition in Vilnius and the Michael Hill Competition in Auckland. With the viola he won prizes at the ARD Competition in Munich and at the Tokyo Viola Competition.
