Christopher Gunning was one of the UK’s most versatile composers and wrote extensively for film, TV, commercials, and the concert hall. His long career took in arrangements for pop stars, famous commercial campaigns for Martini and Black Magic (among many others), TV credits including Middlemarch, Rebecca and Porterhouse Blue, movies including La Vie en Rose (for which he won a Bafta) and, most popular of all, the theme for the TV series Poirot, starring David Suchet, which is loved by millions around the world. Gunning also wrote 13 symphonies, numerous concertos and other concert works.
Chris died in March 2023 aged 78 and in this special concert, friends, family and beloved colleagues pay tribute to his extraordinary talent. The whole range of Chris’ work will be represented, from Martini ads to symphonies and everything in between, performed by special guests and with memories from his friends and family.
