The smooth, accomplished oboe playing of Albrecht Mayer (principal oboe with the Berlin Philharmonic), is backed by the acclaimed chamber orchestra of The Academy of St Martin in the Fields conducted by Albrecht himself.

Bonjour Paris is released in August 2010 in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and will be released internationally in February 2011.

An intimate look at the birth and development of Albrecht Mayer's new AM155 oboe-
Maker: Gebruder Monnig

Albrecht Mayer’s playing has both listeners and critics raving, with expressions like “divine spark” or the “miraculous oboe” that the German player has elevated to become an “instrument of seduction”. He studied with Gerhard Scheuer, Georg Meerwein, Maurice Bourgue and Ingo Goritzki and began his professsional career in 1990 as principal oboist of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra. Since 1992 he has occupied the same position with the Berliner Philharmoniker. Among the most sought-after oboists of our time, he has appeared as a soloist with Claudio Abbado, Sir Simon Rattle and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Along with his solo projects, Mayer considers it important to find time for chamber music and performs regularly with partners such as Hélène Grimaud or Leif Ove Andsnes.
In his search for new repertoire for his instrument, he is constantly fascinated by the idea of lending his voice (that of the oboe) to “foreign” works – pieces written for other instruments or for singers. Having sung as a child for many years in the Bamberg Cathedral Choir, he is especially attracted to the human voice, as the most “natural” of all instruments. In the recording Lieder ohne Worte – Bach transcriptions for oboe and orchestra – the Baroque style and bel canto are delightfully combined. The CD immediately entered the German classical charts at number 2. His CD In Search of Mozart recorded with Claudio Abbado and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra made it to the top of the German classical charts. New Seasons presents music by Handel in a stunning new light. In August 2008, the album In Venice was released by Decca, featuring Baroque oboe concertos by Venetian composers. Voices of Bach, featuring works of J.S. Bach for oboe, choir and orchestra, was issued in autumn 2009. In 2010 Deutsche Grammophon released his collaboration with the young Austrian percussionist Martin Grubinger entitled Drums ’n’ Chants, and his album of music by Debussy, Ravel, Satie, Fauré, D´Indy and Françaix – Bonjour Paris! – appeared on Decca in January 2011.
