DUKAS The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

FRANCK Symphony in D minor
Gilbert Varga conducts the SLSO in a capricious, energetic and warm performance of Franck’s Symphony in D minor and a certain playful magic with Dukas’ mischievous The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
- Franck described his symphony as being “sweet, melancholy, radiant and quasi luminous.”
- Dukas’ mischievous The Sorcerer’s Apprentice was featured in the popular Fantasia with Mickey Mouse portraying the pupil.
- Praised as “one of the most impressive [cellists]” with a “brilliant technique, ringing tone and persuasive musicianship” (Gramophone), cellist Daniel Müller-Schott debuts with the SLSO, performing Lalo’s Cello Concerto.
