The Magic of the oboe

Portrait Albrecht Mayer The Magic of the oboe


Albrecht Mayer, the famous oboist is portrayed thoroughly in this documentary.

Unlike the piano, the violin or even the flute, the oboe is a relatively rare instrument for a solo career. And when a soloist such as Albrecht Mayer plays the oboe, one wishes composers had written more works for this sweetly mellow instrument. Critics write about the "divine spark" that inspires his playing, and about the "miraculous oboe" that turns into "an instrument of seduction." With his particularly warm tone and exceptionally broad palette of nuances, it's no surprise that Albrecht Mayer is one of today's most sought-after international oboists. In this documentary portrait of the oboist, we retrace the musician's impressive career and witness some of its many high points.
