Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Orquesta Filarmónica de Gran Canaria, which has been in existence since 1845, was remolded into the form it has today thanks to public funding made available in 1980. The orchestra has gained an outstanding international reputation: it is a permanent guest at well-known festivals in Europe and has worked with such soloists as Alfredo Kraus, Placido Domingo, Montserrat Caballé, Mischa Maisky, Sabine Meyer and Maria João Pires. Since the 1994 season Adrian Leaper has been Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the orchestra. He is well known for his many successful recordings on the Naxos label.
