Rob Cowan

Rob Cowan presents a selection of music by unfamiliar composers with familiar names, and this week's Bach cantata. This week, Sunday Morning's year-long cycle of Bach Cantatas reaches no. 136: Erforsche mich, Gott, und erfahre mein Herz (Examine me, God, and discover my heart) in a celebrated performance directed by Nikolaus Harnoncourt.

Rob also introduces music by Khachaturian, Schumann and Wagner, but not necessarily by the most well-known composers to have those surnames! And in his mini-series of works for double string orchestra, Rob presents music by Martinu.
