Being a child of the 50’s, I had always associated the “Sorcerer’s Apprentice with Fantasia, Disney, and Mickey Mouse. I didn’t realize until recently that I had never actually heard a live performance of this exciting piece, sans Mickey Mouse!
The Louisville Orchestra did a superb job on the piece tonight and I saw and heard that it is really not an easy piece to play, technically or ensemble-wise. Lots of tricky entrances, silences, and complicated passages for all the instruments.
If you have a chance to hear it live, don’t miss it! Meanwhile, here’s an interesting performance!
