Biography

BONJOUR PARIS The French call the oboe the “noble wood”. Some of the most important
works for the “haut bois” have originated in France. Perhaps because the vibrant, singing soul of the
instrument and its closeness to the human voice have always fascinated French musicians.
Over the years, the German oboist Albrecht Mayer has taken his instrument out of its ... Read more in Amazon's Albrecht Mayer Store

Cantilena - Voices of Bach
Well, I love Bach and, what else can I say, I love the woodwind style of Albrecht, and just find this delightfully soothing.

Voice of the Oboe 19 Mar 2010
By Eileen Pollock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first heard Albrecht Mayer last fall when he played with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, and I was very impressed with his virtuosity in a Strauss concerto. Now we have this fine recording of Bach cantatas arranged for oboe instead of voice. The sounds of the oboe, at times augmented by the baroque choir and backed by the English Concert, are entirely natural, serene, and uplifting. You feel the oboe is as idiomatic to Bach as the harpsichord. Albrecht Mayer is principal oboe of the Berlin Philharmonic and a very talented virtuoso. You can listen over and over to this CD and be transported to a world of tranquility, order, and reverence.

Wonderful performance 13 April 2010
By Dan B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Albrecht Mayer is my favorite oboist, and this album demonstrates both his incredible musicianship and his affinity for Bach and the baroque period in general. And the sounds he gets from the oboe, oboe d'amore and english horn are marvelously rich and, on the lower instruments, indescribably soulful. It's a musical experience without parallel.

And there's more good news: you can easily experience this for yourself. Mayer has a large number of excerpts on youtube that are from his earlier albums (New Seasons, In Venice). He also has at least one from Voices of Bach. If you haven't heard him, you're in for a treat.
