Conversations with Christopher Gunning and Nigel Hess

Renowned British composers Christopher Gunning and Nigel Hess have earned a veritable cabinet of trophies, winning between them five Ivor Novello and four BAFTA awards for their musical contributions to film and television.

We spoke to them recently about their work and their upcoming concert with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra:
