Rob Cowan presents his 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 includes 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.
With voting about to close in this year’s Classic FM Hall of Fame, Rob presents some of your previous choices as well as his recommendations for 2019.
He’ll play a perennial favourite, Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, alongside a wonderful recording of one of Haydn’s most playful symphonies. Further highlights include an archive recording from Placido Domingo, and music by Brahms, Gluck and Dvorak.
Join Rob as he celebrates the arrival of a new season with a vivid musical depiction of spring by Glazunov and a beautifully pastoral piece by Delius. Rob also ventures Beyond the Hall of Fame with the Irish master John Field and one of his contemplative nocturnes.
