Walt Disney's ambitious milestone in film animation, featuring vignettes set to classical music performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra and conducted by Leopold Stokowski.
From the much-loved Sorcerer's Apprentice, in which Mickey Mouse dons a wizard's hat and commands a broom to do his chores, to the ballet-dancing ostriches and hippos of Dance of the Hours and the experimental abstract forms of Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, each piece is brought to life in a unique way. Also includes the Nutcracker Suite, the Rite of Spring, the Pastoral Symphony, Night on Bald Mountain and Ave Maria.
