Quick Overview

Heart Songs, another stunning piece by one of the most important writers of music for wind ensemble and band, takes its title from the image of the tree of life being "watered" by the blood of the heart. Like all of Maslanka's music, it is deeply felt and reflective in nature. The three movements of this suite embrace a variety of serious moods; movements two and three use familiar Bach chorales as the basis for unusually rich and original band writing at the highest musical level. Duration: 16'
