Best known for his evocative film and TV scores to Agatha Christie's Poirot and La Vie En Rose, composer Christopher Gunning feels equally at home in the concert hall. He recently released a new album through Signum Classics, featuring his 2012 Violin Concerto, 2013 Cello Concerto, and 2016 symphonic poem titled Birdflight. All three works provide a musical and emotional rollercoaster that is both whimsical and daring. In this Q&A, Christopher shares his experiences composing these concert pieces.
Chris Warner, composer for the Royal Shakespeare Company and orchestrator for BBC One's McMafia, is all about helping others tell their stories. Earlier this year, he decided to tell his own story and produced a story-driven album called Wonders of the Cosmos. After listening to the album, I asked Chris about his experiences creating this beautiful sonic adventure.
