Notes & Reviews:

Though revered as 'the father of Italian opera', Simon Mayr also wrote large scale instrumental and orchestral music. His 1820 Concerto in D minor has an ingenious trick up its sleeve: it introduces each of the four soloists in turn with the flute, for example, soloing in the first movement and the clarinet in the second. This elegant, lyrical work hints at Beethoven but also at folklore in a winning way. The assured Keyboard Concerto reveals the influence of Haydn on the German-born Mayr whilst the Trio Concertante is imbued with Mayr's vivid operatic impulses. Since 1982 Franz Hauk has served as organist, and since 1995 as choirmaster, at the Cathedral in Münster. Since 2002 he has taught historical performance practice and church music at the Munich State Hochschule für Musik und Theater in München. He has done much to foster a revival of interest in the composer Johann Simon Mayr.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
The sound is crisp and clear, but the open scoring often leaves these pieces sounding hollow. I do like clarinetist Andrea Steinberg's playing very much; her forceful presence somehow commands interest that the music itself fails to create.
