L'Apprenti sorcier, or The Sorcerer's Apprentice, is undoubtedly Paul Dukas' most famous work. Described as a 'symphonic scherzo after a ballade of Goethe', it was first performed on 18 May 1897 but owes a degree of its fame to Walt Disney who used it in the 1940 animated classic, Fantasia.
This recording is performed by the Orchestre Symphonique de Radio-Tele-Luxembourg; Louis de Froment, conductor.
