Violinist Esther Abrami offers a unique video performance celebrating the 40th anniversary of the iconic holiday film, The Snowman.  450 feet above ground on the Brighton i360 tower,  Abrami performs Walking in the Air, which was especially arranged for her by the film’s original composer, Howard Blake OBE.

This feat makes her the first ever solo instrumentalist and the very first classical artist to perform on top of the pod. Taller than the London Eye, the video offers 360-degree views of Brighton, the English Channel, and the South Downs National Park.

’Watching The Snowman is one of the most nostalgic and special Christmas traditions for so many families and I’m so honoured to have been given the chance to share this special version of the iconic track,’ said Abrami.

’It was one of the most fun and also most exhilarating performances of my life – attached by a rope on top of the glass pod and with my violin and bow tied to my wrist – something I will never forget!’

Abrami is joined on piano by concert pianist Anne-Gabrièle Douce on Walking In The Air. The video was filmed by 24/7 Productions, edited by 4th Floor Creative, and in associated with ARTISTS&.
