Description
"Three night pieces; the finale, bright day. As foundation for the whole, the first movement." So wrote Gustav Mahler to Swiss critic William Ritte of his seventh symphony of 1905, which calls for an impressive array of orchestral forces. Throughout their association, Adrian Leaper and the Orquesta Filharmónica de Gran Canaria have made many robust, satisfying recordings of Romantic and modernist repertoire, and this 2009 recording is no exception.

"This quirky symphony, sometimes called 'The Song of the Night,' is best taken at face-value and … allowed to follow its own curious progression, from the increasing darkness of the first three movements to the brighter pair that concludes the work…. [Adrian] Leaper doesn't distort it, but lets it speak for itself, and the Orquestra Filharmónica de Gran Canaria follows his lead and plays the music directly, without caricaturing it."—All Music Guide

"Leaper is an experienced conductor … [who] has carved a successful career in Europe with many acclaimed recordings to his credit. He clearly knows and loves the music of Mahler, since he generally chooses appropriate tempi and phrases the music with loving care for details of expression. For there is no question but that this is a well paced and idiomatic performance of a work which does not always receive its just desserts in the Mahler canon. Some of the music is as distinctive as Mahler ever conceived. For example, as the first movement develops there is a gloriously noble pastoral evocation, which Leaper allows due prominence and indulgence."—Musicweb International
