CHRISTOPHER GUNNING: SYMPHONIES NOS 3 & 4 / OBOE CONCERTO

Born in 1944 in Cheltenham, Christopher Gunning attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where his tutors included Edmund Rubbra and Richard Rodney Bennett. He is perhaps best known for his music for film and television, for which he has won four BAFTAs (La Vie en rose, Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Middlemarch and Porterhouse Blue). This recording presents some of his music for the concert hall: Symphonies Nos 3 and 4 together with his Oboe Concerto. He composed the Oboe Concerto as a birthday present for his daughter, Verity, who is the soloist in this recording. The two symphonies are very different in mood. The Third is an expression of anxiety resulting in chaos, the colourful musical landscape inspired by the Welsh countryside. Symphony No. 4 is more direct and tonal, conveying a sense of triumph over adversity. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is conducted by the composer.
