Blumen (German for “Flowers”) is an eight-movement suite for solo violin consisting of eight miniatures, each depicting a type of flower that grows in both the US and in Germany. Beyond the particular qualities of the flowers, the movements were inspired by my mother’s garden at home in Illinois, where many of these flowers grow, as well as hikes throughout Baden-Württemberg and in the Bavarian town of Mittenwald in 2018.
