The Sorcerer's Apprentice


French composer Paul Dukas wrote his symphonic poem, The Sorcerer's Apprentice , between 1896 and 1897. Subtitled ‘Scherzo after a ballad by Goethe’, the piece was inspired by Goethe's 1797 poem of the same name. By far the most performed and recorded of Dukas' works, perhaps it’s most notable appearance was in the Walt Disney animated film Fantasia  from 1940, which led to the piece becoming widely known to audiences outside the classical concert hall.

The original orchestral work is some 10 minutes in length, however this brass band transcription has been abridged to create a more manageable 6-minute work, yet retains the urgency, magic and colour of the original.
