    If you love Mickey Mouse where he played the Sorcerer in "Fantasia", get this! I had stumbled through my record collection that I found Eugene Ormandy did a version called "The Sorcerer's Apprentice". This was originally used in "Fantasia" in which Mickey Mouse played the Sorcerer. Leopold Strokowski did conducting with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the time before Eugene Ormandy took over. This version was featured on the Columbia Masterworks LP entitled "Fireworks!". For those of you who haven't heard of Eugene Ormandy. He was a conductor for the same orchestra used in "Fantasia" after Leopold left to conduct the NBC Symphony Orchestra. Eugene released a lot of classical LP's under the Philadelphia Orchestra banner when it was released on Columbia's Masterworks label (before it became Sony Classical) over the years. But why did Eugene did that version? It was borrowed from "Fantasia" in Mickey Mouse eventually stole the show. I have this version taken from the record. Let's take a listen and hear what it sounded like.
