Bach Generations delivers, as promised, works by several members of the Bach family, ranging from Johann Sebastian's older cousin Johann Christoph Bach through J.S. Bach himself to sons Carl Philipp Emanuel and Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach. None of the works J.S. Bach is thought to have actually written for the oboe (these exist as adaptations by J.S. Bach himself for keyboard, but the originals have been reconstructed) is included. Those might have worked better than the transcriptions the Albrecht Mayer does play; the spiky Keyboard Concerto No. 2 of Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach doesn't rest so easily on the oboe's keys. However, in the slower numbers, Mayer has a distinctively luxurious tone. Sample the adaptation of the tenor aria "Sanfte soll mein Todeskummer" from the Easter Oratorio, BWV 249. The familiar Badinerie from the Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor, BWV 1067, is just as good on the oboe as it is on the flute. Mayer plays an oboe, an oboe d'amore, and an English horn for variety, and he is ably backed by the Berliner Barocksolisten. Another draw, especially for physical CD buyers, is the attractive drawing of the entire Bach family tree in the booklet. For oboe buffs, much of this album is likely to set a new standard, and it has shown considerable general appeal, making classical best-seller charts in the summer of 2023.
