The repertoire of the new album revels in the Romantic tradition of the instrument with Schuman's popular Three Romances and works by contemporaries of Brahms and Liszt composed for Mayer's instrument: Heinrich Herzogenberg's Trio for Oboe, Horn, and Piano and August Klughardt's five fantasy pieces Schilflieder (Song of the Reeds) for oboe, viola, and piano

Albrecht Mayer is joined by outstanding viola player Tabea Zimmermann, horn player Marie-Luise Neunecker, and by Markus Becker at the piano, “unbeatable as a virtuoso, a musical soul painter with great understanding” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)

The album title is taken from the title of the work by Klughardt and acknowledges the longing of Romantic music, the acclaimed vocal tone of Albrecht Mayer’s playing, and the reed which gives his instrument its unique voice
