Paul Dukas is only known for one composition, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", which is a Scherzo for Orchestra. This piece was featured in Walt Disney's "Fantasia", depicting Mickey Mouse casting magic spells over a broom and a bucket of water, with disastrous results in the end! In particular, the bassoon theme represents the essence of this work.
Dukas was a friend of Debussy. He did also write other instrumental works and one opera.
