Ilan heads north

The young Israel conductor Ilan Volkov, who last year quit the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in rather abrupt circumstances, has acquired an aptitude for northern latitudes. Volkov, 34, has been announced today as chief conductor of the Iceland symphony orchestra.

Good career move? Not on paper. Iceland is flat broke and its orchestra is not famous. Why, then? Maybe Ilan knows something we don’t.
