Johann Sebastian Bach – Cello Suites

Sergey Malov
– violoncello da spalla

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. His repertoire ranges from early Baroque music to Johann Sebastian Bach, from classical and romantic violin concertos to the world premieres of contemporary music. 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.

As a violin and viola soloist he has performed with orchestras such as the BBC London Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Enesco Philharmonic Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the Auckland Philharmonia and the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. Recital invitations lead him to places as Schubertiade Hohenems, Festival Cervantino Mexiko, Herkulessaal München, Konzerthaus Berlin or Zaryadye-Hall Moscow.

The 2020/21 season held debuts with hr-Sinfonieorchester Frankfurt and with State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia for a play-conduct-concert. Reinvitations lead him, among others, to Orchestra de Ciudad de Granada as Conductor-in-Residence.

The 2021/22 season will provide a number of debuts, i.e. at Musikverein Wien, Boulez Saal Berlin, furthermore the Musica Festival Bogotá welcomes him for three performances.

In September 2017 Malov was appointed professor at the Zurich Musikhochschule. His recordings have been released by DECCA, EASonus, Hänssler Profil, Alba and Pan Classics. In September 2017 SoloMusica released his album „Hommage á Ysaÿe“. “Paganini” was published in spring 2019 on which Sergey recorded Paganini’s 24 caprices. Sergey`s latest album “Bach – 6 Suites for violoncello solo” – recorded on his Violoncello da spalla – was released in April 2020 by SoloMusica and received outstanding critics (“…a CD which is thoroughly terrific.“ Süddeutsche Zeitung, Reinhard J. Brembeck, 27.4.2020).

The videos with his violoncello da Spalla have been viewed over a million times on the Internet. In addition to Bach’s 6 cello suites, Malov plays a wide repertoire of solo and chamber music on this instrument.
