This is for the... child inside everyone!

The Sorcerer's Apprentice is the English name of Goethe's poem Der Zauberlehrling (1797). The name also refers to Paul Dukas's L'apprenti sorcier symphonic poem of 1897 which was inspired by Goethe's poem. Goethe, in turn, had got the idea from Lucian's story of Philopseudes.

Although Dukas's musical piece was already quite well known and popular, it was made particularly famous by its inclusion in the 1940 Walt Disney animated film Fantasia, in which Mickey Mouse plays the role of the apprentice. Its popularity caused it to be used again in Fantasia 2000.

There have been numerous recordings of the music. The full effects of the lush orchestral work were first captured effectively with the advent of electrical recordings, including the 1929 performance by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Arturo Toscanini, released by RCA Victor. Toscanini also made one of the first high fidelity recordings of the music, again for RCA, with the NBC Symphony Orchestra in 1950. The first stereophonic recording was probably by Charles Munch and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, also for RCA.
