Bringing Snow Globe to life
Performed by composer Laura Snowden and Ioannis Theodoridis, this Grade 5 duet was specially commissioned for our Guitar syllabus.
The Snow Globe is named after a popular toy, a small glass sphere containing a winter scene which when shaken fills with a miniature snowstorm. Laura says ‘I have loved snow globes since I was a child and sought to portray their magic by combining harmonics with a slow waltz-like rhythm and expressive melody.’
Laura Snowden studied at the Royal College of Music and was entrusted with the Wigmore Hall premiere of a new work by Julian Anderson, commissioned by the Julian Bream Trust.
