How did Oleg Volkov like the West the first time he visited?"You can see the result yourself right here!" exclaims the pianist, who left his native Russia two years ago and now lives in Silver Spring.Volkov, who will give a recital Sunday afternoon at the Walters Art Gallery, came to this country in 1990 to compete in the University of Maryland's William Kapell Competition. It was a competition that the then 32-year-old pianist didn't need -- he had already won several important competitions in Europe and had a flourishing career in his native country.

Among those most deeply affected by the death of cellist Dmitry Volkov were his colleagues in the award-winning Russia Trio -- pianist Katherine Harris Rick and violinist Nikita Borisevich. At Monday's memorial held at the Peabody Conservatory, where Mr. Volkov and the other trio members did graduate studies, Ms Rick delivered these touching remarks about her friend: I remember very vividly the first time I met Dmitry. I had heard the buzz about his incredible playing that went around when he first arrived on campus, so when I received a call from him about needing an accompanist for something, I immediately started practicing.

NEW YORK -- His stomach hurt. His head ached. His serve creaked.Goran Ivanisevic was in trouble yesterday at the U.S. Open. It was hot. He was sick.

Fast food."If you eat those McDonald's cheeseburgers you go to the hospital forever," Ivanisevic said. "But they got used to them here because they are eating them all their life."Something was wrong.

To Noi Volkov, a simple faucet, a model of a Ford Thunderbird and photos of Marilyn Monroe and Woody Allen are more than just odds and ends. To him, they are the makings for a ceramic teapot. "I am trying to create a new, unorthodox style of ceramics," said the 60-year-old Owings Mills man. "It's a mixture of Renaissance and pop art. It has a little bit of Dali and some Picasso." The teapot uses the back of the T-bird model as a handle, the faucet as the spout, and images of Monroe and Allen on either side of the body.

MOSCOW -- One day in 1928 they arrested Oleg V. Volkov and brought him in a horse-drawn cart to the Lubyanka, headquarters of the Soviet secret police. It was the beginning of a 27-year odyssey through the Gulag.Yesterday the white-bearded writer returned to the square in front of what is still the KGB building -- to help unveil a simple stone memorial inscribed: "To the memory of the millions of victims of the totalitarian regime.""I never thought I'd live to see a time when I could not only tell the truth about what happened, but see a monument to those who will never return," the 90-year-old Mr. Volkov declared.

Until further notice, this is the U.S. Open of Jimmy Connors.He's like Sinatra, now, walking on stage to a standing ovation, and the band hasn't even played a note. He gives them the standards -- the double-pump fist after dumping a running forehand up the line. He gives them something modern -- flicking that fluorescent lime green racket in the air to start a Wave cheer.Connors hits winners and fans bow. Connors wins a set and the roar shoots up from the stands and goes out into the night.

Twenty-three stories above Broadway, on New York's upper West Side, Solomon Volkov and his wife, Marianna, occupy a small flat crammed with neatly arranged books, recordings, mementos. Floor space is at a minimum, what with a baby grand piano and a bed in the living room. Something about the space suggests the kind of tight quarters that people have long been used to in Russia. Something about the lack of contemporary amenities specifically suggests the old Soviet days -- a single telephone, of 1970s vintage; no answering machine, no fax, no computer.

Oleg Volkov loves the music of his country. The second half of his recital yesterday at the Walters Art Gallery featured works by Scriabin, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov, and they were pieces that the young Russian pianist was clearly more comfortable with than those by Schubert and Beethoven featured on the first half.The way he played six preludes by Scriabin exuded confidence. These early Chopinesque works -- they were from the opus 11 dTC and opus 16 sets -- had just the right combination of muscularity, mystery and color.
