Heartland is a beautiful marriage of Entrée de Polymnie from Les Boréades (Rameau) and Cavatina from Miniatures, Op.75a (Dvořák) by Brian Slawson. With lush melodies and shimmering metallic textures, Heartland is a lovely canvas to showcase musical maturity and sensitivity via musical hierarchy, shaping slow melodic lines, and ensemble communication through ritardandi. 

Heartland is written for 6-8 players with standard instrumentation. Optional parts, such as crotales and accessory percussion, can elevate the piece to new heights.

Heartland ships as a printed, professionally bound score, and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or tablet viewing.
