Written based on Johann Wolfgang Goethe s poem under the same title Already a famous orchestral work as it stands alone Made more popular by its appearance in Fantasia a Walt Disney movie Romantic style programmatic music which is also found by many contemporary composers as an alternative form to past symphonic genres In Goethe39s poem the sorcerer s apprentice attempts to perform magic while the sorcerer is away and enchants a broomstick to carry buckets of water for him Initially very pleased with himself the apprentice quickly loses control of the situation as the broom continues to carry in so much water that the house actually starts to ood Unable to nd the magic words to undo his spell the apprentice hastily resorts to chopping the broom in half with an axe only to see both pieces come back to life and continue fetching water from the river at an even greater pace The story concludes with the sorcerer returning home to this chaotic scene and ordering the broom back into the closet nally breaking the spell two utes and piccolo two oboes two soprano clarinets and bass clarinet three bassoons and contrabassoon four horns two trumpets two cornets three trombones timpani GlockenSpiel bass drum cvmbals triangle harp and strings The formidable glockenspiel part is sometimes handled by a pianist playing a keyboard glockenspiel or celesta but is usually played by a percussionist on a traditional glockenspiel making it a common orchestral excerpt for percussion auditions In the beginning we could hear the utes and oboes playing violin as bass leading us slowly into some kind of mysterious yet magical world It s neither happy or sad but it has the alluring effect to it We felt as if adventure is just imminent and yet a hidden world was raving for our exploration After 1 minute all of a sudden the dynamics changed Pizzicato of violins and harps and trumpets and piccolos made its appearance again slowly French horns strings accompanied Pizzicato staccato and harps again surprising effects fast like we just slide through a tunnel of a rabbit hole into Wonderland Loud Trumpet tada Fast and then stopped silence like fear and then starting to explore pum pumpum tiptoeing walking on grass not exactly fear but wary Contrabassoons making heartbeat sounds like taking the stairs step by step quickly secretive slowly came to a whole lot of sound with trumpets adding to the dynamics Glockenspiel came in fairy dust freckled everywhere Outburst everything that s when magic came out of control and then Dynamics changed again bassoons heartbeart

woodwinds came in faster strings came in faster pick up the pace like the sorcerer had jsut come home and tried to solve the mess and made everything in place again tremelo of string drums trombone all in full motions the whole orchestra aloud but in order Drums building up the tension brass became increasing loud and chap cheng brass like French horns cheering for the socerer s triumphant victory of settling the magic failure home Stop Bassoon pick up 1 by one joinedd bty strings slowly like the start but not secretive but peaceful conductor could nnaly calm pucky each instruket and
