Without question one of the most venerated shorts of Mickey’s much-venerated career, “The Band Concert” claims its position for many reasons, not the least of which is its historic position as his first appearance in Technicolor. With the exception of some cheering at the beginning and a squawk or two from Donald, the cartoon is played entirely without dialogue against Rossini’s William Tell Overture (with the addition of a few bars of other compositions inserted for comic emphasis) as Mickey conducts his entire band into the heart of a tornado during the rousing finale without missing a note. It’s a performance worth standing up for. This rare pair of images as Mickey gives his performance everything he’s got are 5-1/4” and 4-7/8”, rendered in black pencil on 12-field sheets by Les Clark. The first of Walt’s Nine Old Men to join the Studio, Clark would go on to animate him in another historic role as the sorcerer’s apprentice. To assure their stability, the drawings been backed with the special transparent glassine the Studio used for many years to separate drawings in storage. Disney, 1935.
