The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra is the BBC's classical music radio orchestra in Scotland.

Founded as the BBC Scottish Orchestra in 1935 by the Scottish composer and conductor Ian Whyte, it developed a strong profile supporting the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the UK and abroad, performing regularly at the BBC Proms, the Edinburgh and Cheltenham festivals. Every season, it tours Scotland extensively, bringing orchestral classical music to the smaller provincial towns as well as the larger cities. It also has a recording contract with Hyperion Records.

Since January 2003, the orchestra's Chief Conductor is the Israeli-born Ilan Volkov, the youngest ever chief conductor of any BBC orchestra. In 2006 the orchestra returned to its home, the Glasgow City Hall, which had undergone several years of restoration and refurbishment. Jonathan Harvey is the BBC SSO's Composer in Association. In September 2007, the orchestra announced that Volkov is scheduled to step down from his post in September 2009. In October 2007, the orchestra announced that Donald Runnicles will become their next Chief Conductor in September 2009, for an initial contract of 3 years.

 

Ilan Volkov (born 1976, Tel Aviv, Israel) is an orchestral conductor. His formative years were spent with the conductor Mendi Rodan at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem, before continuing at the Royal Academy of Music in London. At age 19, he was named Young Conductor in Association to the Northern Sinfonia. He later served as conductor of Young Sinfonia, the youth orchestra of the Northern Sinfonia. In 1997, he became Principal Conductor of the London Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. In 1999, Seiji Ozawa named Volkov the Assistant Conductor with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Volkov has been Chief Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra since January 2003, having made his debut appearance with them in 1998. At the time, he was the youngest chief conductor appointed to a BBC orchestra. He was named the Royal Philharmonic Society Young Musician of the Year in 2004 in recognition of his work with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. In September 2007, the orchestra announced that Volkov is scheduled to step down from the orchestra in September 2009, when Scottish conductor Donald Runnicles will succeed him.

Volkov has made a speciality of recording long-unperformed or never before recorded works by neglected artists. He himself has spoken of his affinity with music written "between 1909 and the 20s".[4] In 2006, with the BBC SSO, he released a CD of works by the Russian composer Nikolai Roslavets.

 

Elliott Cook Carter, Jr. (born New York City December 11, 1908) is an American composer from New York City. He studied with Nadia Boulanger in Paris in the 1930s, and then returned to the United States. After a neoclassical phase, he went on to write atonal, rhythmically complex music. His compositions, which have been performed all over the world, include orchestral and chamber music as well as instrumental and vocal works.
