About the Music
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, with music by French composer Paul Dukas, is a magical 8-minute sequence, telling a very old fairy tale interpreted as a poem by Goethe, illustrating the dangers of power over wisdom.

The Deems Taylor narrative that opens the best-known segment of the film is as follows:

And now we’re going to hear a piece of music that tells a very definite story. It’s a very old story, one that goes back almost 2,000 years, a legend about a sorcerer who had an apprentice. He was a bright young lad, very anxious to learn the business. As a matter of fact, he was a little bit too bright, because he started practicing some of the boss’s best magic tricks before learning how to control them.

    Really Great Posting. Sorry English is not so good please accept my apology. I am from Turkey and don’t type English so well. I’ve bookmarked this posting. Thanks!

    Can you find away to find for me a copy of the piano music by Deems Taylor, namely his Prelude and Fugue, of which I had a copy published in New City around 1940 or in the Thirties. My copy has gone to music heaven. I had first heard on the radio on a Sunday morning in 1943. It must be available in some private or university music department. I would like at least a photocopy.

    Thank you, John R. Gallup, Ph.D.

      Hi John,

      Deems Taylor was the host of the film. You would be looking for Johann Sebastian Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in D Minor. There is a free sheet music arrangement of the Prelude for piano solo on MakingMusicFun.net (http://www.makingmusicfun.net/). The whole thing should be available on the SheetMusicPlus.com website. I hope you find what you are looking for.

      Andy
