The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

The famous symphonic poem and a recently composed cello concerto.

Award-winning French cellist Gautier Capuçon performs internationally with the world’s top conductors and instrumentalists. He is known for his expressive playing, dazzling virtuosity, and the deep sound of his Matteo Goffriller cello from 1701. 

Capuçon was soloist for the world premiere of American Lera Auerbach’s cello concerto in Munich in 2021. The piece is now being performed for the first time with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, which commissioned the work. Auberbach, born 1973, is also a poet and a visual artist. 

The conductor is French Lionel Bringuier, who debuted with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra as a substitute in January 2022. He works all over the world at the invitation of prominent orchestras and opera houses, and is currently connected to the opera house in his home city of Nice. 

Two French works follow the intermission. We hear Paul Dukas’ symphonic poem The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, after Goethe’s poem by the same name. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is also well-known music from the Disney movie Fantasia. The poem is about an apprentice who gets a broom to carry water for him, but cannot get it to stop. Last, we hear Albert Roussel’s most popular work – the dramatic and colourful Symphony No. 3.
