Album Notes
Film composer Eric Hester speaks about his score from "The Tale of Peter Rabbit":

“Musically I had initially set out to create a distinctly quaint English feel. I began the project writing the main title cue and sent the demo track over to Dennis. His first comment was that he did not want the score sounding too ‘British’. I rewrote the passage and added a new motif that sounded more western. This new motif became Peter’s theme, represented by the flute and piccolo, usually accompanied by the celeste. I love using leitmotifs and the method is on playful display throughout as the Peter Rabbit narrative lends itself perfectly. Mr. McGregor is represented by the bass clarinet, bassoon and celli, thematically more dark. I kept the instrumentation fairly small, but there are some moments of action where the orchestration gets wider in the brass and strings. The music follows the on screen actions closely and there were many visual cues to hit one after the other, there is a lot of thematic development of the various motifs in this score. The music is a playful blend of western and a generalized classical European feel."
