Paul Dukas is famed for his brilliant, meticulously scored symphonic scherzo The Sorcererís Apprentice, first performed in 1897, which almost immediately entered the international repertoire. It was subsequently the focus of a ballet and, later, Walt Disneyís film Fantasia.
Magical scoring is also a feature of La pťri, a poŤme dansť of great imaginative verve. The delightful, colourful Symphony in C was composed mid-way between these works.
For this recording, manuscript sources for the three works were consulted, including the hitherto private proofs of the first edition of The Sorcererís Apprentice, ensuring rigorously faithful performances.
