Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Bavarian-born Simon Mayr spent much of his life in Italy where he promoted Viennese classical composition but also absorbed much from his studies in Bergamo and Venice. Though he was one of the most admired operatic composers of his day - he taught Donizetti, who revered him - he was particularly noted for his sacred oratorios. His characteristically vibrant musical palette marks Jacob's Flight from Laban, with important writing for Wind instruments, operatically-based arias and confidently-handled ensembles and choruses. Franz Hauk is Mayr's leading interpreter and acclaimed for his many recordings. 'The music, performances, and recording are all first rate; unconditionally recommended.' (Fanfare on Il sagrifizio di Jefte / Naxos 8.572719-20)

Gramophone Magazine, May 2015
Flights of occasional brilliance are heard within a generalised ability to meet the dramatic challenges of the material at hand...Recitatives have a respectable level of dramatic heat...Conductor/harpsichordist Franz Hauk's Mayr advocacy is more about respect than passion.

MusicWeb International, April 2015
A thoroughly professional creation ... inventive scoring ... fresh and captivating.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The performance is quite good. Franz Hauk has recorded many of the Mayr oratorios and operas for Naxos. rown is a sweet Leah; Lang-Alsvik an accurate, exciting Rachel. I almost wish Hauk had assigned Laban to a male voice. The orchestra plays expertly, and the sound is excellent. A pleasant enough way to spend 80 minutes.
