‘In taking special applause at the end, the cor anglais player, Emily Cockbill, stood for the whole orchestra’ - Nigel Jarrett, Wales Arts Review

I love the beautiful sound of the Cor Anglais and the versatility of colour the instrument can produce. I have appeared as Guest Cor Anglais with many of the leading ensembles around the UK and am currently on trial for the position with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra.
Over my career so far I’ve covered many of the most demanding solos from the orchestral repertoire most recently including, Ravel Piano Concerto (recording with Philharmonia Orchestra), Dvořák’s 9th Symphony (Live broadcast on BBC radio 3, CBSO) and Shostakovich’s 8th Symphony (Live broadcast on BBC radio 3, RSNO).
