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’.
Tracklist from the first programme:
‘Ugnayan’ from Ugnayan (Tzadik)
‘1st August 2009, Adam Talking’, from The Period before the Birthday (self-released)
Micheline Coulombe Saint-Marcoux
‘Sequences’ from Anthology of Canadian Music (Radio Canada International)
‘Fuat Bahani’ from Folk Music of Albania (Topic Records)
‘Angelus’ from L'Annonce faite à Marie (Jade)
‘The Danube Delta by Night’ from Nocturnes du Monde (Frémeaux & Associés)
‘Transform (Stream): Monopole’ from Ground: Five Mechanic Convention Streams (OODiscs)
