“Gotthard Odermatt's Été is a delightful modern piece in the style of Ravel at his most pastoral.” The Independent, 25th February 2011 *** “Mayer produces a velvety, ravishing sound of sensual purity. The authentic Gallic oboe tone is more nasal and plangent than Mayer's blemishless stream of eloquence, but when the results are so alluring I can't imagine anyone worrying unduly...Mayer sustains an astonishing level of musical poise, shaping every phrase to golden perfection.” Classic FM Magazine, June 2011 ****
