About

'13 Strings' is Sergei Malov's exciting new project, bringing together Bach's Chaconne in D minor with György Ligeti's atonal 'Chaconne chromatique', two pieces that could hardly be more different upon first hearing. He plays on three instruments: a Baroque violin, a modern viola and a five-stringed violoncello da spalla, an instrument played on the shoulder: 13 strings, 3 instruments, 2 composers and one musician.

Sergey Malov's interest in historically informed performance practices led him to study the Baroque violin and more recently the violoncello da spalla. In addition he has won major competitions on both violin and viola (Heifetz 2008, Mozart 2010) and the viola (Tokyo 2010). Today he successfully combines all these instruments in recitals, concerts and recordings and he has appeared as a soloist with orchestras such as the London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, Tokyo Philharmonic, St Petersburg Philharmonic, Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
