Trio Zadig Announces New Member

Violinist Miclen LaiPang will replace the ensemble's founding violinist, Boris Borgolotto


The French-American Trio Zadig has recently announced the appointment of a new member, who will replace the ensemble's founding violinist Boris Borgolotto. The place will be filled by violinist Miclen LaiPang, who is jointly based in Paris and Vienna.

The trio, which alongside Borgolotto originally comprised cellist Marc Girard Garcia and pianist Ian Barber, was formed in 2014. Borgolotto and Girard Garcia were childhood friends, who then studied together at the Paris Conservatoire National de Musique and at the University of Music in Vienna. They formed the ensemble after encountering Barber in Paris.

After almost a decade, Borgolotto has elected to step down from the ensemble to pursue new projects in a different country.

His replacement, LaiPang, has performed in over 50 countries and is the recipient of numerous awards, including first prize at the American Virtuoso International Music Competition, the grand prize at the Vancouver International Music Competition, plus first prize and and Judge’s Best Performance Award at the Vienna Virtuoso Music Competition, among others.

He has also attended prestigious festivals, including the IMS Prussia Cove Open Chamber Music, Rome Chamber Music Festival, iPalpiti, Tanglewood, New York String Orchestra Seminar, Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra, Lyricafest, and the Castleman Quartet Program.

LaiPang received his Konzertexamen degree from the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf, where he studied with Ida Bieler and also served as her teaching assistant. He also studied with Boris Kuschnir, Charles Castleman, and Ruggiero Ricci.
