Voices of Bach | June 21 - June 27 2010
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. Voices of Bach also features the award winning specialist baroque choir: Trinity Baroque.
