Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, 26th February 2015
Mayer performs them with the suave elegance and sustained beauty of tone you would expect from the Berlin Philharmonic's principal oboe.

Albrecht Mayer is widely considered the world's greatest oboist and on his new 12-track album Lost and Found, he presents rare and sublime oboe concerti from the 18th century. With his unmistakable cantabile sound, Mayer breathes new life into these long-lost jewels of German high classicism, discovered in music archives in Thuringia and Saxony. The four, classically proportioned concerti are direct predecessors to Mozart.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Mayer's playing, with the aid the delightfully boisterous Kammerakademie Potsdam, adds brilliance where any ambiguity may have existed. The balance of soloist and orchestra is effective; one never overshadows the importance of the other. Clarity of tone, rhythmic nuance, and litheness of technique are always present and engaging in Mayer's playing.
