In case you don’t already know, I’m a huge fan of Albrecht Mayer. I have this feeling he could play absolutely anything on oboe (or d’amore or English horn) and I’d be in heaven!

I just purchased the “Voices of Bach” recording. You might want to as well! (I got mine through iTunes, but I’m sure it’s available elsewhere.)

If we believe that behind the universe there is a Creator who instills order, must we accept our destiny, whatever it brings? Does this make us believers or fatalists? They are fascinating questions, which in Western art find their closest expression in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

  1. Patti,

    He will be playing with Orpheus again in December at Carnegie Hall. I believe he is playing Bach’s d’amore concerto and a Mozart violin piece he transcribed.

  2. Yep, I saw that! I sure wish I could be there. I just love his playing! (And I’m a fan of Orpheus as well!)
