with Laura Snowden

Hailed a string sensation by BBC Music Magazine, British-French guitarist and composer Laura Snowden is acclaimed for her ‘poise and intensity’ (Guardian) and playing of ‘extraordinary depth’ (Strings, Classical Music Magazine). Described by Classical Guitar Magazine as ‘linking guitar’s past, present and future’, she was invited by Julian Bream to premiere his commissions in two recitals at Wigmore Hall, as well as studying with him for several years. Her international appearances have since built rapidly, with festival debuts across Europe, China and the US, as well as concerto debuts with Norrköping Symphony Orchestra and Münchener Kammerorchester, and a recording of Lisa Streich’s guitar concerto Augenlider with the Deutsches Symphonie Orchester.

As a composer, Laura’s music has been performed at Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall and Sadlers Wells, commissioned by the Park Lane Group, Birmingham Symphony Hall and International Guitar Foundation, and broadcast on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Scotland and Hong Kong Radio 4. Also a songwriter and folk musician, she was invited by John Williams to perform at Shakespeare’s Globe with her folk group Tir Eolas.
