About

“Breathing is key – it carries the soul and with it, the oboe starts to sing.” – Albrecht Mayer about his quest for the perfect cantabile line

Vocalise is a compilation of favourite pieces from Albrecht Mayer’s recent releases in which the oboe more than lives up to its reputation as a wind instrument remarkable for its singing tone.

The artist personally selected this collection ranging widely from Baroque arias of great virtuosity to the charm of the French chanson.

Even as a boy soprano with the Bamberg Cathedral Choir, Albrecht Mayer was already fascinated by the human voice, and although he later decided against pursuing a career as a singer and chose instead to become an oboist, he is unquestionably a magician who as soon as he breathes life into his instrument casts his spell on his listeners’ hearts and minds with the beauty of his playing, transforming the oboe into an irresistible vox humana.

“Albrecht achieves these incredible textures and beauty of tone which no other oboist seems to come close to …” – Nigel Kennedy
