Gunning for a hit.

Chris Gunning is new to me but it appears he's been around for a while. His sound world sounds like it was grabbed from a 1940 or 50 textbook. They're fine compositions but there isn't any new that's brought to the table. From what I can gather he is a composer of mostly tv and film scores but he lacks the distictive edge of,say, a John Williams that could set him apart from the herd. Still, if you're into this sort of thing it's all fine and dandy. The Gunnings and the RPO play with commitment and clarity.

Worth it

He's a very good composer and the royal philharmonic does a fantastic job of presenting his work. the 3rd symphony sounds very stravinsky but still very good, love the oboe concertos and the 4th symphony.
