David Snell was born in Grantham, Lincolnshire. From an early age he was only interested in having a musical career. He commenced by becoming a pianist, studying harmony and counterpoint.
His talents as an arranger and conductor led to numerous engagements with the various BBC orchestras.
Some of David's classical compositions include 'Divertimento for Strings', 'Lyric Sonata' for Flute, Viola and Harp, 'Intrada and Waltz' for Violin and Harp and various song cycles for Soprano and Harp, 'Fantasie' for Horn, Clarinet and Harp, 'Elegie' for Flute, Cello and Piano.
His 'Sonatina' for Flute and Guitar is to be recorded later in 2002. In 1997 his 'Requiem' received its first performance in St. John's Smith Square. His commissions for a variety of 'production music' houses in London, Frankfurt and Toronto cover widely diverse styles of music, ranging from light children's music to heavy dramatic scores used extensively in TV and radio stations throughout the world.
Conducting film scores 'to pictures' has added yet another dimension to his career and has involved working with the London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields orchestras. In Europe Orchestre de Paris, Munich Symphony Orchestra, and the RTE Orchestra (Madrid).
