Fantasia

Regarded by many as Walt Disney’s masterpiece, Fantasia predicted the modern music video by offering nine animated segments that were directly inspired by compressed versions of well-known classical music without necessarily adhering to the original composers’ intent. Featuring the work of the Disney studio’s artists at the height of their powers, and coupled with conductor Leopold Stokowski’s musical arrangements, Fantasia’s fanciful interpretations include a semi-abstract rendition of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor; water sprites, dancing mushrooms, and other creatures in Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite; Mickey Mouse as the title character in Paul Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice; dinosaurs roaming a primordial Earth in Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring; frolicking mythical creatures in Beethoven’s The Pastoral Symphony; ballet-dancing ostriches, hippopotamuses, and alligators in Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours; and the rise and fall of the dark demon Chernobog in Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain and Schubert’s “Ave Maria.” Deems Taylor’s narration (and brief words by Stokowski and Mickey) provide the only spoken words in the film.
