 For the reed quintet that isn't shy from a challenge, this arrangement of Dukas's Sorcerer's Apprentice is ripe with technical difficulties in all parts, but is wholly amusing for audiences of all ages. The music is known to several generations of film goers as the music that accompanies Mickey Mouse's antics in the 1940 Walt Disney concert film, Fantasia. Originally scored for a massive romantic orchestra, this reed quintet arrangement still evokes a fanciful and supernatural atmosphere and will strike sonic nostalgia for many different audiences.
