  • Review: 3rd Symphony, 4th Symphony and Oboe Concerto » Christopher Gunning
    understand his situation Five sections played continuously investigate the possibilities thrown up by the opening material It s cogently argued and endlessly fascinating If Roger Wright wants a contemporary British Symphony which could be a real and instant winner at the Proms then this is it It s fabulous stuff The 4th Symphony celebrates the recovery of both himself and his wife from their medical problems and there is less angst than in the earlier work as you would expect but it s still a closely argued work never resting in its musical quest to get the most and the best out of the material employed Here there is a more laid back easy going at times English countryside feel to the music which displays more obvious growth in the developmental sense of the word the scoring is more transparent and it ends with the most exciting optimistic blaze of orchestral sound Between these two works is the delightful Oboe Concerto written as a Christmas present for his daughter Verity who plays it here with the most pleasing and attractive tone I ve heard in some time from an oboist very carefully controlled vibrato an unforced tone and seemingly miraculous breath control This is scored for string orchestra and is outgoing and delicate a real charm of a piece The performances are flawless both Verity Gunning and the orchestra are superb the recording is excellent so clear that you can hear every note and Gunning s own notes are succinct and very readable The disk claims to be the first in an unfolding series and I can hardly wait for its successor By the way did I mention that this is fabulous stuff This is a must Bob Briggs And another review of the disc from Rob Barnett I know some of Gunning s work from his Saxophone Concerto on ASV White Line CD WHL2138 2002 and also from several of his film scores Chris Fifield reviewed an Albany disc of his First Symphony a couple of years ago I also recall reviews of his symphonic work for brass band Yorkshire Glory I was pleased and intrigued to see this CD of his seriously intended orchestral music He was born in Cheltenham and has been a pupil of Rubbra Richard Rodney Bennett James Gibb whose piano recordings have been reissued on Lyrita recently and Brian Trowell In addition to the works here he has a string quartet and concertos for clarinet and for piano to his name His writing for the screen includes a score for Firelight There s more to see at his website His concert music is predominantly tonal but with the freedom to adopt dissonance to suit mood and trajectory While the two symphonies here have a single movement apiece each is helpfully tracked into five segments The Third emanates from a tortured time in the composer s life This shows in the occlusion of expression the shadows hesitation even desolation that characterises much of the music

  • A review of symphonies 3 and 4 on Telecharger » Christopher Gunning
    Gunning with the oboe soloist in her own daughter Verity Gunning not missing more than having an orchestra composed entirely of Gunning just as in the film An American in Paris where Oscar Levant playing the piano solo of his own concerto while directing an orchestra made only of clones all instruments to win the grand slam Bref Brief Voici donc le compositeur britannique Christopher Gunning dont vous avez sans doute entendu bien des œuvres sans le savoir car parmi l une de ses cartes se trouve celle de compositeur de musique de films La vie en rose Agatha Christie s Poirot de nombreux documentaires et séries télévisées de la BBC la campagne publicitaire d une marque d apéritif italien voilà quelques unes des innombrables partitions qu il a signé au cours de sa longue et fructueuse carrière This is the British composer Christopher Gunning you ve probably heard many of the works without knowing it because as one of his cards is the composer of film music La vie en rose Agatha Christie s Poirot many documentaries and TV series from the BBC the advertising campaign of a brand of Italian aperitif these are some of the countless scores he signed during his long and fruitful career Oh non ce n est pas de la musique au rabais qu il nous propose ici ses symphonies sont parfaitement dignes de toute grande salle de concerts des meilleurs orchestres au monde et si l on devait tirer un parallèle avec quelque autre musicien on penserait immédiatement à Dutilleux souvent Roussel parfois Andrew Lloyd Webber absolument jamais Oh no this is not to discount the music that we suggested here his symphonies are perfectly worthy of any large concert hall the best orchestras in the world and if one were to draw

  • An Interview with Christopher Gunning Written by Ben Hogwood » Christopher Gunning
    because it was the most wonderful thing I d ever seen as a boy and I was very conscious of the effect of the music His other teacher was Dr Brian Trowell He was supposed to be coaching me for a bachelor of music degree but his lessons involved going back through music history we went from mediaeval music to the present day It was a very hands on approach In the main Gunning warmed to composition without the guidelines of a film script Once or twice I must admit I did wish I had a director to tell me what to do Composing is a very lonely business anyway when you re doing this you ve got absolutely nobody apart from anyone who s knocking around the house and they d rather be listening to Radio 1 anyway The main difficulty I faced was whether I acknowledged traditional forms developed over the last hundreds of years or if I did chuck it all out how do I structure things For the most point in film you turn it on and off where you like and that s the thing I was trying to address He elaborates in the case of the Third Symphony I don t suppose it was original he says modestly but I came up with a set of variations that I don t think the casual observer is going to be able to connect but I know the connection exists I adopted a similar sort of procedure in the Fourth but I desperately wanted to write in a tonal way We talk through music Gunning loves Rachmaninov s Symphonic Dances and expresses admiration for Steve Reich and John Adams I ask if he feels there is an American influence in his orchestration the open textures of Copland perhaps That s interesting I think it probably does sound a bit more American I like American music very much Aaron Copland obviously and Carl Ruggles too Virgil Thomson is a composer I like very much more than someone like Charles Ives I don t quite know what people get from him sometimes He goes on to relate an amusing story about a performance of Ives s Fourth Symphony in a sense making his point as he does so We performed it at college and I was playing percussion In the last movement which is a sort of funeral march the percussion does totally different things from the rest of the orchestra In all the rehearsals it was fine but in the performance I was playing two gongs The man next to me was counting through his breath the whole way and when it came to the concert he counted five by accident instead of four so nobody knew exactly where we were and it carried on like that for the rest of the concert I couldn t tell what anybody else was doing so we got quieter and louder with the orchestra were bashing away and finally finished
