|Comments:||Based on Goethe's poem Der Zauberlehrling. The music was later popularised by its inclusion in Walt Disney's Fantasia, with Mickey Mouse taking the part of the Sorcerer's Apprentice.|
Mickey makes a guest appearance in this piano transcription. Watch out for him nearly 5 minutes in. Don't blink or you'll miss him.
The poem relates how the Sorcerer leaves many chores to his apprentice. The apprentice, fed up with this, decides to cast a spell on a broom to fech water and clean the floors. This gets somewhat out of control and the apprentice attempts to stop the spell by chopping the broom up. But each piece takes on life and causes havoc. The Sorcerer returns and saves the day and reminds the apprentice that such powerful spiits should only be called by the Sorcerer himself.
