Trio

Trio Nº4

for flute, oboe

and clarinet in Bb

2013

Commissioned by Hilary Mohr in early 2013 this trio explored a new departure from previous works. The goal was to employ a new harmonic language distilled into horizontal lines for each player, compounded by the use of trio instrumentalists.

In three movements, the trio was inspired by the poem “As Kingfishers catch fire…” by Hopkins. The opening movement deals with the imagery from the first stanzas while the third movement reflects on Hopkins’ personal spiritual beliefs.

The work received First Prize in the inaugural Stefans Grové Composers Competition in South Africa and later became the compulsory Masters requirement work at the Pedua Conservatory, Italy.
