I vote for Java (SmallTalk?) style too.

I wouldn't bother with openRead/Write; just pass the mode in to open
like in the ctor.

I also second keeping the implementation entirely in the header (if it
really is a light wrapper) and put "inline" in front of each method
definition.

SndFile::strerror() should maybe take an int arg (the value returned
by SndFile::error()) and be declared as a static method?
