About this Recording

MAYR, J.S.: Tobia, o Tobiae matrimonium [Oratorio] (Simon Mayr Choir and Ensemble, Hauk)

One of the most important composers of opera and sacred music between Mozart and Rossini, and Donizetti’s teacher, Johann Simon Mayr also composed several major oratorios, including David (8.570366–67) and The Marriage of Tobias. Like Haydn’s more famous Il Ritorno di Tobia (8.570300–02), Mayr’s work recounts how the archangel Raphael miraculously helps the boy Tobias to cure his aged father’s blindness. Conductor Franz Hauk prepared the performing edition for this exciting new recording. Mayr’s L’Amor coniugale (8.660198–99), and L’Armonia and Cantata sopra la morte di Beethoven (8.557958) are also available.
