Hello and welcome to my website
Thank you very much for showing interest in my undertakings and I invite you to browse through the various sections at your leisure.
As a start, I was born in Adelaide, South Australia, later graduated with my music degrees at the Elder Conservatorium, University of Adelaide and shortly afterwards moved to Switzerland.
Years later, in 2009, I unexpectedly began composing, writing song texts and poetry and thanks to many supportive colleagues have since been able to have my works performed, recorded, produced, published and distributed.
A collection of works can also be found online, via CD, sheet music or on YouTube with Susannah Snow’s Channel.
Hoping you enjoy my music,
A New Year has begun – a chance to start afresh and be filled with hope for the future. I wish that all will have many happy and blessed moments throughout 2021 and that compassion, care for others and love is what will be spreading around the globe.
NEW PUBLICATION: The Angel of Peace Op. 69 for voice and piano
I am thrilled to be able to announce the first sheet music publication of one of my vocal compositions – „The Angel of Peace“ (2016) – which was inspired by the apparitions of the Archangel St. Michael, the Angel of Portugal at Fatima in 1916 to the three shepherd children Lúcia dos Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto.
Further I am most deeply honoured to have been permitted to dedicate this song to H.R.H. Dom Duarte Pio de Bragança, Duke of Bragança, Head of the Portuguese Royal House.
This 16 page book was published by Emanomusic and the cover displays a wonderful painting by the Swiss artist Vittoria Theresia Mozzi who studied the text and history of the apparitions at Fatima and then created this moving work of art of the Angel of Peace together with Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco.
The photo of this painting was taken by Michael Dellefant, the graphic layout designed with Avarel Studios and I programmed the music score with the Sibelius Ultimate 2020 Music Programme.
I am also grateful that this publication is now available at Musik Hug Zürich with Order Number 80.EMD 012-3 at CHF19.- and I am endeavoured to donate proceeds to children’s charities and so thank you very much for your support.
Released in summer 2020:
Paul Klee’s „Double Tent“ 1923, 114 has inspired 50’ of music for soprano and piano.
I have dedicated this song cycle to Angela Rosengart, Martina Kral and Carmela Konrad, in gratitude for their support and collaboration, especially in the year of 2017 when this work was created and in 2018 when it was recorded.
Please visit The Rosengart Collection Museum, Lucerne where Paul Klee’s masterpiece can be found at its home in the Klee Room.
“Twin Tents” has been admitted to the Music Archive in the Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern and is available at Musik Hug Zurich and various other outlets. More about this project can be found under ArtMusic.
