Russian violinist staging Saturday concert in Nago

Date Posted: 2012-06-15

Grigory Sedukh is a Russian violinist, but he’s much more, being the world’s first to play the Violin-Piccolo as a soloist.

His skills and talents are on display Saturday afternoon at the Nago Civic Hall, where he will play in concert for both adults and youngsters. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. for the 3:30 p.m. performance organized by the Nago Social Education Committee. Advance tickets are ¥1,000 for adults and ¥500 for elementary school and pre-schoolers. Tickets at the door are ¥1,500 for adults and ¥800 for young students.

Sedukh has been playing the unique violin-piccolo since 1995. He’s been in concerts worldwide, varying his musical repertoire, which includes more than 300 works ranging from baroque pieces to music of the 21st century. He’s the first to make the miniature violin, the violin-piccolo, his instrument of choice, and the first soloist on the instrument.

The Violin-Piccolo is also called a treble violin, created by American lutier and acoustician Carleen M. Hutchins after 30 years worth of research. Although the unique instrument can utilize traditional violin techniques, its small size makes it acoustically different. Aside from being an octave higher, the instrument’s unique timber combine a blend of violin, flute and oboe qualities, generating a powerful sound despite its small size.
