Mickey leads an 8-piece orchestra (that's counting the bass played by three birds as one) through the most recognizable parts of the Poet and Peasant Overture. The setting, as the title implies, is a barnyard, and some of the instrumentation reflects that (including various animals used as instruments, like a tuned group of piglets whose tails Mickey pulls).Written by

For many of us, cartoons were our gateway to classical music. One of the most oft used is "Poet and Peasant." It has lots of moving parts and musical variations. It is quite joyful. Here, the animals aren't the instruments: rather, they play instruments. One of the funniest parts of this piece involves a pig who keeps playing the wrong note. The reason is put forth when he shows Mickey his music. Mickey is a conductor and this is a good deal of fun.
