Rob Cowan makes a welcome return to Classic FM to present his new Saturday evening show, Cowan’s Classics, on Saturdays 7-9pm. Get in touch with Rob by texting 61812 or using the contact form below.
First introduced on Classic FM 25 years ago, Cowan's Classics will include Rob’s Sure Shot, where he champions a new recording which he’s tipping for success, Beyond the Hall of Fame where he will pair a favourite piece from the Classic FM Hall of Fame with a lesser known piece by the same composer, plus music from his Artist of the Week.
Rob’s Artist of the Week is Alfred Brendel, so expect plenty of the great pianist’s finest performances throughout the evening.
Plus, Rob’s starting point for Beyond the Hall of Fame is Mozart’s highest placed piece in our annual poll, the Clarinet Concerto. Rob follows this with a lesser-known but equally beautiful piece, which fans of Mozart’s music are sure to enjoy.
Rob Cowan presents a journey of musical discovery – and this week, John Williams’ best-loved film score for E.T. is the starting point as he takes us Beyond the Hall of Fame. Meanwhile, Rob’s Artist of the Week is the pianist, conductor and composer André Previn.
