Notes & Reviews:

Principal oboist of the Berlin Philharmonic and a hugely successful recording artist in his native Germany, Albrecht Mayer is a world-renowned musician and winner of Germany's prestigious ECHO-Klassik as Instrumentalist of the Year. His latest Decca solo album is a celebration of the music of J.S. Bach. The album includes works written specifically for wind instruments (both oboe and cor anglais) as well as great melodies from the choral works in new, authentic arrangements made for this recording by Andreas Tarkmann. Albrecht Mayer is joined by one of Europe's best-known baroque orchestras - The English Concert - who are among the world's finest chamber orchestras with a reputation for inspiring performances of Baroque music. The album also features the award winning specialist baroque choir: Trinity Baroque.

BBC Music Magazine
The most satisfying items on the disc are the eight chorales...which are all affectingly sung by Trinity Baroque under its director Julian Podger...In summary, this is an interesting concept sympathetically realized

Gramophone Magazine
...this disc provides a pleasant listening experience. We can certainly relish Mayer's exceptional technique, especially his circular breathing, and his musicianship.

The Independent
Overall, a well-realised alliance of simpatico voicings.

The Observer
Bach has many voices, and this disc is a bold attempt by one of the world's leading oboists to sing many of them himself...He makes a gloriously rich sound, and the alto solo 'Widerstehe doch der Sünde', with its astonishing dissonances, works well.
