2016-11-19 Laura Snowden - London (UK)

Postby Francesco Mariani » Sun Oct 16, 2016 11:23 am


Stoke Newington Guitar Festival is proud to welcome Laura Snowden, one of the UK's outstanding young guitar talents.

Handpicked by Julian Bream to give a recital at the Wigmore Hall in 2015, Laura is a winner of the Tillett Trust, St Johns Smith Square, International Guitar Foundation and Making Music young artist schemes. Performances have included Buxton Festival, Kings Place, BBC Radio 3 (live), and Shakespeares Globe with Tir Eolas at the invitation of guitarist John Williams. Her compositions have been commissioned by London Guitar Festival and Deal Festival, and premiered at Sadlers Wells.; her song Live Free was performed at over three hundred simultaneous concerts in over sixty countries.

Laura began her studies at the Yehudi Menuhin School, where guitar tuition was made possible by a donation from the Rolling Stones; she went on to study at the Royal College of Music, winning the Guitar Prize in her first year and the Ivor Mairants Guitar Award in 2014. She currently teaches at the Yehudi Menuhin School and has been invited to teach at the International Guitar Foundation's Summer School, the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and Uppsala International Guitar Festival (Sweden).

Her Wigmore Hall recital at the invitation of Julian Bream in 2015 received universal acclaim ...

"A poignant, mesmerising show....held the Wigmore Hall rapt with a performance of unassuming poise and intensity"
(Guardian 2015)

"Great expectations exceeded....a true musician whose interpretative capabilities are profound and exciting. A brilliant international career awaits her over the coming decade"
(Classical Guitar Magazine 2016)
