I was seeing some videos and got into total “Fantasia” mode.
So, a question to the readers: which video of Fantasia better captures the essence of each planet?
This is my list. If you have opinions about it, please, give your list on the comments. I am using both the music and the animation as guidelines
The nutcracker suite. For the fairies, not because of the mushrooms.
The sorceror´s apprentice, that appeared both in 1940 and 2000. Mickey dream of being a powerful sorcerer, it is destroyed by the uncontrollable nature of magic.
To me, the nature of mercury is best captured by Rhapsody in Blue, showing the electric rhythm of New York
Dance of the hours – yes, beauty IS in the eyes of the beholder.
Firebird suite – fire but also life it all its power
The rite of spring – the labour pains of the creation of the world.
Pompe and Circunstance with Donald Duck
but also the Pines of Rome, they both represent Grace.
Night on bald mountain: In the night of Samhaim, evil spirits are raised from their graves.
Regards to all in a beautiful day (at least where I live is shining bright)
