The Snowman Suite for Flute and Piano

Composer-Howard Blake


Raymond Briggs’ charming Christmas story about the adventures of a boy and the snowman that comes to life is a modern children’s classic. The tale’s popularity has been further enhanced by frequent television broadcasts of the award-winning cartoon film The Snowman.

In this suite for Flute and Piano, composer Howard Blake recreated the story in words and music based on the scenes from the film. The music includes the hit song ‘Walking In The Air’.

Howard Blake

Howard Blake is a renowned pianist, conductor, and composer. He won a scholarship to The Royal Academy of Music at the age of 18, studying piano and composition. Over the course of his career, he has crafted more than 700 works spanning various genres and styles. Undoubtedly, his most well-known composition is the score for the animated film ‘The Snowman,’ featuring the iconic song ‘Walking in the Air,’ for which he also wrote the lyrics.

Notable among his concert works are the Piano Concerto commissioned by The Philharmonia Orchestra for Princess Diana’s thirtieth birthday, the Violin Concerto commissioned by the City of Leeds and The English Northern Philharmonia Orchestra, the Clarinet Concerto for Thea King and the English Chamber Orchestra, as well as large-scale choral and orchestral pieces like ‘The Passion of Mary’ and ‘Benedictus.’ These latter works were championed and recorded by Sir David Willcocks and Robert Tear with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Bach Choir.

Howard’s extensive collection of recordings includes his woodwind concertos conducted by Sir Neville Marriner with The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, and an album of his piano music performed by Vladimir Ashkenazy and recorded for Decca.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music and was honoured with the Order of the British Empire from the Queen in recognition of his contributions to music.
