Albrecht Mayer: Bonjour Paris
Albrecht Mayer, principal oboe of the Berlin Philharmonic, celebrates a lifelong passion for France with this album of popular melodies, including favourites by Debussy, Fauré, and Ravel — plus the world-premiere recording of the impressionistic Été.
“Gotthard Odermatt's Été is a delightful modern piece in the style of Ravel at his most pastoral.” The Independent, 25th February 2011 ***
“Mayer produces a velvety, ravishing sound of sensual purity. The authentic Gallic oboe tone is more nasal and plangent than Mayer's blemishless stream of eloquence, but when the results are so alluring I can't imagine anyone worrying unduly...Mayer sustains an astonishing level of musical poise, shaping every phrase to golden perfection.” Classic FM Magazine, June 2011 ****

“L'Horloge de Flore is captivating...It is beautifully played by Lajos Lencses, and the accompaniment is admirably tasteful. In short, this is a miniature treasure, and it is supported by other inconsequential chamber works, all playful and presented with much finesse.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition
