Radio Volkov

Conductor Ilan Volkov, who has spent the last two weeks in self-isolation, complying with Israel’s Coronavirus guidelines, has used the time to start a new radio programme on Soundcloud.

Volkov has wide-reaching musical tastes and his selections are made from his own collection: ‘Everything I choose is an actual physical release that I have at home – tapes, CDs and vinyl. I am selecting from classical, electronic, world and experimental music. I will talk about each track a bit and my personal connection to the music.

He will produce two programmes each week, he says, ‘Until the madness stops’.
