Program Notes

Dragon of Wyckham puts the solo marimba in front of a concert band or wind ensemble. Unlike many of Helble's pieces, this piece is more atmospheric, featuring a portentous, ominous opening Adagio, and an Allegro that alternates dark drama with dazzling and climactic moments of triumph.
