    saxophonist busking against the sounds of the city Gramophone Magazine remarked The most striking work by far this is a haunting work ending as magnetically as it opens This was closely followed by his 1st Piano Concerto and Symphonies 1 and 2 But it was with Symphonies no 3 and 4 and his Concerto for Oboe and Strings released on the Chandos label that Gunning really attracted attention This is what the press said This is fabulous stuff That really is all I need to say but I ll say it again This quite simply is fabulous stuff it has everything symphonic music should have tension drama a real sense of purpose a knowledge of where it is going and best of all the composer knows that when he s said what he has to say and Gunning has a lot to say he stops Music Web International Christopher Gunning is a resourceful and imaginative composer clearly fascinated by the single movement form in which both of these symphonies are cast the third immediately takes a grip on the imagination and offers the listener a full symphonic workout The piquant Concerto for oboe and strings for me takes the palm Light on its feet with some lovely moments for individual players in the first movement it acquires a more ruminative melancholy feel in the second where the soloist appears to be lost in her own thoughts The quasi motto perpetuo finale brings out the youthful and spirited character of its dedicatee This is a charming composition winningly played Gramophone Magazine a Christmas gift for his daughter Verity And what a gift it is This is beguiling music Classical Source Gunning shows the potential for making a major contribution to the future of British music and this release makes it well worth your while getting to know who he is right now Fanfare Magazine Conducting the RPO Christopher Gunning s knowledge and influences are widely eclectic and range from pop music jazz and film music to Ravel Bartok Stravinsky Ginastera and Lutoslawski He argues that it should be possible to draw on various techniques to express a wide variety of emotions Symphony no 3 is composed in a single movement with sub sections and is highly dramatic it was composed against the backdrop of a possibly life threatening illness As therapy the composer spent many hours walking in the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons of Wales and the work explores the area s changing light patterns seasonal changes and unpredictable weather conditions Symphony no 4 also in a single movement by then his health had improved remarkably and it is generally more optimistic in nature but nevertheless dramatic He was more inclined to adopt a celebratory mood in some forceful fanfare like music towards the end Recording the Piano Concerto Since then Gunning has composed Symphonies 5 6 and 7 No s 6 and 7 follow his fascination with a single movement form broken into several sub sections but no 5
