Cue of the Week: “Egon’s Decision”


This is a medley of two cues from The Penguin Who Wouldn’t Swim, embodying the “drama in a storybook world” flavor common to the music in that score. I love the string performances in this recording – they came out wonderfully expressive.

(It’s a bit sad that the fabulous musicianship in studio recordings is often anonymous. I do my best to keep track of musicians who play for me, but in the case of a string section brought in by a contractor it can definitely be tricky.)

    Nice choice for cue of the week. I haven’t heard that in a long time. I can still imagine the penguin squawks that accompanied it.

    Not really a ditty you can dance to, though. My kids used to spend hours dancing to (and singing) Oswald’s Song.
