Ilan Volkov

  • Conductor


Ilan Volkov succeeded Osmo Vänskä as Chief Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in January 2003, having first conducted the orchestra in 1998. His interpretations of the Classical and Romantic repertoire have been praised for their lucidity of texture and structure, rhythmic vitality and depth of insight. He is also a passionate advocate of contemporary composers, and plays an important role in the orchestra’s continuing commitment to new music. Volkov has taken the BBCSSO on highly successful tours of Spain, South America and the Baltics.
