Work Overview

Bloom has taken many forms. A horn trio was developed from the original solo violin piece for the Linus Ensemble and the horn trio was arranged for piano trio for Trio Anima Mundi. The original Bloom for solo violin, was a little like a personal meditation in composition. The process Katherine used to write the piece was to play the violin and focus on the different tone colours and motifs that made her feel a sense of calm and enjoyment. This included both auditory enjoyment - what was felt when listening to the sounds of the music when playing them on the violin; as well as physical enjoyment - what was felt when using variation in rhythm and tempo in the bowing arm, and through using variation in left hand positioning and other movements over the violin in the left hand. Simply put, Katherine focused on writing music that felt good to play. This violin solo was then used as the basis for developing the interweaving piano and horn parts.
