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.)
