Discovery Music and Vision. The DMV label features six discs by BAFTA Award Winning British Composer Christopher Gunning including the highly acclaimed and commercially successful DMV103 Music from Agatha Christies Poirot which featured John Suchet as the Belgian detective. “Probably the most-heard variant of the Poirot theme is Grey Cells. Nearly every film would have a sequence in which Poirot thinks and thinks. So I devised this piece, in which you can hear the grey cells ticking over throughout, while the saxophone plays its own variant.”
“You could never accuse Christopher Gunning of low output: nine symphonies, chamber music, award-winning film and TV scores and concerti for piano, flute, oboe, clarinet and saxophone, now joined by works for violin and cello (DMV119). Harriet Mackenzie’s expressive playing makes Gunning’s sinuous solo line sing like a bird in his unashamedly lyrical celebration of the landscape in the Brecon Beacons. It’s instantly accessible, warmly melodic yet never trite or cloying (the first movement is a gem, built around a single chord). The cello concerto is grittier, exploring dark themes of ageing and loss. “ THE GUARDIAN
