“. . . his immaculate, mellifluous artistry is a marvel.” --Gramophone, June 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 ****

Albrecht Mayer (oboe), Academy of St Martin in the Fields

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 ****
