‘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 the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Ballet, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh National Opera, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Opera North, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
Over my career so far I’ve covered many of the most demanding solos from the orchestral repertoire, including Shostakovich’s 8th Symphony (BBC Radio 3 - Live Broadcast, RSNO).
