Sergey Malov graduated from the University of Mozarteum in Salzburg and the Hanns Eisler Hochschule in Berlin. He went on to win major competitions on two instruments: the violin (Heifetz 2008, Mozart 2010, Michael Hill 2011) and the viola (Tokyo 2010). His skills now extend to yet another instrument, the violoncello da spalla. Today he successfully combines all these instruments in recitals, concerts, and recordings. He has appeared with several prestigious orchestras, including the BBC Symphony and the Moscow Philharmonic, and has been invited to play chamber music at the festivals in Verbier and Gstaad. Malov is multi-talented and equally at home with ancient music and modern compositions. He also speaks six languages fluently: Russian, Hungarian, English, German, French and Spanish.
