Christopher Gunning composed the iconic theme music for "Agatha Christie's Poirot" and the incidental music for series 1, and 3-9. This CD contains music from series 1, plus two sections from "five Little Pigs" and one long section from "Death on the Nile," both of which are from series 9. There are 15 tracks in total, with a combined running time of over 70 minutes.
Because special music was composed for each film, there is a huge variety of music to be found on the album, ranging from pastoral (A Country Retreat and To the Lakes) through high tension (The ABC Murders, The Death of Mrs Inglethorpe, and part of Death on the Nile) to ethnic (the middle section of Death on the Nile.) Nursery Rhymes are elaborated upon in How Does Your Garden Grow and One Two Buckle My Shoe, and Poirot's own theme appears now and then, with his own "thinking" theme featured in Grey Cells. Several of the tracks were originally included on the Virgin CD from 20 years ago, but the music fromDeath on the Nile and Five Little Pigs has never appeared before.
"For any music lover who follows the Poirot series with David Suchet this disc should be a must. Perhaps the whole disc in one listening may perhaps be a little too much - but not for me - the music is lovely and memorable. There is surprising variety and the performance is superb as is the sound. And it is fun."
