Star oboist Albrecht Mayer’s latest Deutsche Grammophon album is inspired by his lifelong love for the music of Mozart. The album includes a new reconstruction of Mozart’s Oboe Concerto in F major in a world premiere recording and several new arrangements of Mozart’s most famous pieces like his “Ave verum corpus” and “Exsultate, jubilate”. The German oboist Albrecht Mayer has waited until now to record his first all-Mozart album, a personal and affectionate tribute to one of the greatest composers who ever lived. Mayer’s album is made in partnership with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and harpsichordist Vital Julian Frey. Its tracklist features a version of the Concerto for flute and harp in B flat major, K 299 (297c) made for oboe and harpsichord, and a transcription of Exsultate, jubilate, K 165 (158a) for oboe d’amore, orchestra and organ. Also included are arrangements of the concert arias Non temer, amato bene, K 505 and Ah se in ciel, benigne stelle, K 538, the Rondo in C major, K 373 and the motet Ave verum corpus, K 618.
