5.0 out of 5 stars Formidable 10 April 2013
By downkiddie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This hugely enjoyable and atmospheric CD perfectly evokes the spirit of Agatha Christie's famous detective. Composer Christopher Gunning's music added enormously to the feel of ITV's magnificient series, and his absence from the newer episodes is one of the main reasons they don't always hit the spot like the old ones did.

No matter, there's so much here to enjoy and bask in the glow of the glory days. This will most obviously appeal to fans of the TV series, but it stands on its own merits as superb musical compositions. The pastoral arrangements of "A Country Retreat" and "To The Lakes" are simply exquisite, up there with the greatest composers. The darker, more mysterious pieces such as "The Double Clue" and "How Does Your Garden Grow" feel more like a film score and are less suited to general listening.

The closing track, "Death on the Nile" is a glorious overture to one of Christie's most famous stories. Another longer, film-score style piece, this one is also good for general listening with its accents of mystery, excitement and the East.

It should be noted 12 of the tracks here have already been released on the 1992 album from Virgin also called Agatha Christie's Poirot. That CD had 14 tracks in total, from there "Death in the Clouds" and "The Plymouth Express" have been omitted here, to be replaced by newer compositions "The Innocence of Caroline Crayle" and "Amyas's Last Painting", and the aforementioned "Death on the Nile".

This new CD is improved by a rearrangement of the track listing, grouping the darker pieces together in the middle rather than mixing them up and slowing the flow by putting some at the start, as on the earlier CD.

. Simply wonderful, small booklet with informations. I would recommend this for all admirers of David Suchet playing Hercule Poirot, the world famous belgian detective created by Dame Agatha Christie.
