About

Albrecht Mayer is widely considered the world’s greatest oboist . On his new 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. Always looking to expand the repertoire of his instrument, Mayer discovered these four 18th Century concerti in ancient music archives in Thuringia and Saxony.

The four, classically proportioned concerti featured on the album are direct predecessors to Mozart – there is even evidence Mozart knew and studied these works, and may even have had a hand in the composition of the work of Kozeluch. The music on this album is beautiful and very lyrical.

Mayer’s previous albums have consistently ranked in the German pop charts – the only oboist in history to have achieved such prominence and popularity.
