Sara Kirkland Snider ~ Composer of Music

European premiere of SOMETHING FOR THE DARK at Elbphilharmonie

Sarah’s 2015 orchestral work, Something for the Dark, received its European premiere by the Danish Aarhus Symfoniorkester August 23, 2018, under Maestro Andreas Delfs, at Hamburg’s stunning Elbphilharmonie. Part of a concert entitled “Seven Deadly Pearls,” it shared a program with music by Kurt Weill and Shara Nova, and subsequently received performances in Aarhus, Denmark.

Something for the Dark was inspired by a Philip Levine poem and commissioned by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra as the prize for the Elaine Lebenbom Competition for female composers, which Sarah won in 2014. You can listen to the original version (Sarah revised it in 2016) of the piece here.
