Music

The music for “Poirot” was composed by Christopher Gunning.

Gunning was born in England and spent his childhood in London. He graduated from the School of Music and Drama. He was initially an arranger and then began composing music for films. In 1988 he composed the main theme for “Poirot” and became well known in the UK and America. He was nominated for the Ivor Novello Award for the theme music for “Poirot.” Gunning has won several awards including a BAFTA award and three Ivor Novello Awards, one of which he was nominated for the plaintive alto sax melody of the Poirot theme.
