»That old sorcerer has vanished / And for once has gone away! / Spirits called by him, now banished, / My commands shall soon obey.« So begins Goethe’s famous ballad »The Sorcerer’s Apprentice«, in which the sorcerer’s pupil soon realises that »Spirits that I’ve cited / My commands ignore«. Goethe’s rich imagery inspired Paul Dukas, who was ten years the senior of fellow French composer Maurice Ravel, to compose a fantastic symphonic poem.

The work, which is subtitled »Scherzo«, is brilliantly orchestrated and scintillates with inspired motivic ideas. Ravel was another master of the high art of instrumentation and his immortal »Boléro« is the highlight of this quintessentially French evening.
