. . . the oboe, in this instance an up-to-the-minute instrument with all mod cons, most beautifully played by Albrecht Mayer.

Albrecht Mayer ist ein Ausnahmekünstler und feiert in den Pop-Charts Erfolge wie sonst nur Anna Netrebko . . . Viele haben sich schon an Instrumentalversionen berühmter Opernarien oder anderen Transkriptionen versucht. Das Ergebnis war oft belangloser Kitsch. Bei Albrecht Mayer ist das anders, weil er ein ausgezeichnetes Gespür dafür hat, bei welchen Werken es künstlerisch sinnvoll ist, ihnen einmal "seine" Stimme, die der Oboe, zu leihen.

. . . Mayer gives us a full range of approaches: he plays it stately and elegant, as in Bach's Italian Cantata BWV 209 . . . but also lives up to the athletic demands of the instrument, as in the finale to the Concerto for oboe, strings and continuo, which combines themes from Cantatas BWV 105, 170 and 49. Joining Mayer throughout is The English Concert, one of Europe's finest baroque orchestras, as well as the choir Trinity Baroque, all contributing to an appealing collection that breathes new life into Bach's work.
