The Russian-born musician died in his sleep over the weekend

Thursday, 15 May 2014

Officials have concluded there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the sudden death of cellist Dmitry Volkov, it has been reported. The 26-year-old, who died in his sleep over the weekend, suffered from an undetected cardiac arrhythmia, or irregular heart rhythm, according to Baltimore medical examiner Bruce Goldfarb.

Volkov’s Baltimore-based piano trio was named the winner of the 29th Annual Yellow Springs Chamber Music Competition in Ohio last month, and also won prizes at the Coleman Chamber Music Competition in 2013 and the Chesapeake Chamber Music Competition in 2012.

A graduate of the Moscow Conservatory, Russian-born Volkov won the Carlos Prieto International Cello Competition in 2009.
