Adventures in music, ancient to future: Nick Luscombe combs through the incredible record collection of Ilan Volkov. Former Chief Conductor for both the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Volkov has an enormous musical appetite, premiering new compositions, unearthing lost pieces, and programming the Tectonics festival with an orgy of new sound, notes and improvisation. In August he will conduct Prom 30 (Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky) and Prom 46 (Mahler and Mozart) for the BBC.
