Program Notes

Dragon Sky was commissioned by the 2015 Flower Mound Wind Symphony. Every ancient civilization has dragons in its lore. Most all mythology has dragons in some form or another. Mankind has had an ongoing love affair with these winged beasts since the beginning of recorded history and perhaps beyond. Real or not, dragons have made our existence richer, our stories more exciting and our nightmares much more interesting. Does that not to some extent make them real? For hundreds of thousands of years man did not rule the sky. Imagine a world with dragons in it. If the sky dreams, it is not of birds or man-made contraptions, surely it dreams of dragons. If the music is pretty, the dragon is flying. If it is suspenseful, the dragon is stalking. If the music is scary or exciting, the dragon is attacking, and chances are we are running for our lives. In the end, you either run from your dragons or you can ride them.
