Biography



 

Biography
 

Kirill Volkov (b. 1943) is one of the most prominent Russian composers of his generation, a graduate of the Moscow conservatory, where he studied in the class of the outstanding composer Aram Khachaturian.

K. Volkov is the author of operas “Peasant’s Story”, “Our Gaidar”, “Live and Remember” (on novel by V. Rasputin), “Unhappy Detective” (on novel by V. Astafiev); cantatas “The Tale” (on the text from “The Tale of Igor Campaign”), “My Serene Motherland”, two symphonies, concerto “Andrei Rublev”, symphonic “The Vladimir Triptych”, suite for a harp quartet “Russian Towns”.

His works have been successfully performed through all over the world.

Kirill Volkov has been awarded with the Glinka Russian Federation Prize for the opera “Live and Remember”, cantatas “The Tale” and “My Serene Motherland”.

“I appreciate Kirill Volkov, a young gifted composer, first and foremost for the fact he is a Russian composer and that his works are suffused with Russian melodies. Already today K. Volkov has his own musical language and his own distinctive style. This allows us to hope that he is one of those young composers who will shoulder the responsibility of caring for the future of our native music”. Aram Khachaturian
