After the great success of his last Deutsche Grammophon album dedicated to works by Mozart, oboist Albrecht Mayer now turns to the uniquely gifted Bach family. "Bach Generations" is based on the thread of genius that runs through the different generations, producing works that span late Renaissance, Baroque and Classical styles.

For this album, he has made selections of music by four members of the family: Johann Sebastian himself (1685-1750), Johann Christoph (1642-1703), Carl Philipp Emanuel (1714-1788) and Johann Christoph Friedrich (1732-1795). A transcription of a work by Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel, formerly attributed to J.S. Bach, is also among the recordings.

"Bach Generations" was recorded with the Berlin Baroque Soloists and Gottfried von der Goltz (solo violin/concertmaster) and will be released on CD and digitally on August 4, 2023.
