In the first part of the concert, Darius Milhaud's popular and entertaining orchestral piece entitled The Ox on the Roof represents the music of France and, to some degree, Brazil, since the title of the work refers to an old Brazilian tango. While Milhaud's work is linked to both Jean Cocteau and Charlie Chaplin, Paul Dukas took his inspiration from Goethe when composing his symphonic scherzo The Sorcerer's Apprentice. First premièred in 1897, the composition treats a ballad that the German giant wrote exactly a century earlier using musical notes to portray the novice warlock who brings a magic broom to life but then is unable to stop it.
