Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bavarian-born Simon Mayr spent much of his life in Italy where he promoted Viennese classical composition but also absorbed much from his studies in Bergamo and Venice. Though he was one of the most admired operatic composers of his day–he taught Donizetti, who revered him–he was particularly noted for his sacred oratorios. Jacob’s Flight from Laban is marked by his characteristically vibrant musical palette, with important writing for wind instruments, operatically-based arias and confidently-handled ensembles and choruses. Franz Hauk is Mayr’s leading interpreter and acclaimed for his many recordings. “The music, performances, and recording are all first rate; unconditionally recommended” (Fanfare on Il sagrifizio di Jefte/ Naxos Read more 8.572719-20).
