Notes & Reviews:

N

"Gunning has an uncanny knack of unlocking character, time and place in his film and TV scores...with the BBC Philharmonic on board under Rumon Gamba's direction, the performances are immaculate and idiomatic." -Gramophone Magazine

"The music itself is so good and so well orchestrated...that my attention was held throughout...The scores for Under Suspicion and Cold Lazarus...are quite masterly in their evocative power and instrumentation." -International Record Review

"Gunning does not play things too safe. A bold and original composer, he creates drama and tension through interesting tone and tempo changes, unexpected notes that twist the listener's expectations and a keen ear for the emotional qualities of every instrument he selects. The BBC Philharmonic serves him well, drawing out all the music's colours." -Classic FM Magazine ****
