Conductor's score, A4 booklet

Although Christopher Gunning is best known for his film and television work, for which he has won four BAFTA awards (for La Vie en rose, Agatha Christie's Poirot, Middlemarch, and Porterhouse Blue) and three Ivor Novello awards (for Rebecca, Under Suspicion, and Firelight) he has gradually been adding to a substantial is of concert works, to which he now devotes all of his time.

Christopher Gunning attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where his tutors included Brian Trowell, James Gibb, Edmund Rubbra and Richard Rodney Bennett. His compositions for the concert hall include nine symphonies and a number of concertos.

The Concertino for Flute and Small Orchestra was composed for Catherine Handley in 2011 as a result of trips to the Welsh mountains, valleys and villages, where Catherine lives. The outer movements are mostly light and airy, while the central movement is especially quiet and lyrical, a reminder that it is still possible to experience welcome feelings of timelessness among the inspiring Welsh scenery.

The Concertino has also been performed at the Presteigne Festival 2015 by Catherine Thomas (flute) and by the Blaze Ensemble with Marrielle Way (flute) conducted by George Vass.
