Program Notes

The music of How to Train Your Dragon by composer John Powell is perhaps the best film music of the past ten years. The beautiful animation film is sublimely supported by this music. With titles such as: This is Berk, The Downed Dragon, See You Tomorrow, Romantic Flight, Battling the Green Death and Coming Back Around, a spectacular selection has been made for both harmony and fanfare. A pleasure to play for the orchestra.

- Program Note from publisher

How to Train Your Dragon is a 2010 American computer-animated action fantasy film loosely based on the 2003 book of the same name by British author Cressida Cowell, produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

The story takes place in a mythical Viking world where a young Viking teenager named Hiccup aspires to follow his tribe's tradition of becoming a dragon slayer. After finally capturing his first dragon, a Night Fury, and with his chance at last of gaining the tribe's acceptance, he finds that he no longer wants to kill the dragon and instead befriends it.
