Influential, popular and prolific in his day, Bavarian born Simon Mayr left his mark in providing a bridge between Northern classicism and the bel canto of Italy, his adopted country of residence. The oratorio Samuele deals with the calling of Samuel as a prophet, and was written in 1821 for the consecration of Pietro Mola as Bishop of Bergamo. Mayr set his oratorio to the Poesia of one of his pupils, Bartolomeo Merelli, the collaboration resulting in a fascinating work which combines theology with dramatic innovation such as the use of ‘melodrama’ or spoken text.


MusicWeb International August 2012

“Samuele is unusual because it is mainly made up of parodies of some of the composer’s previous operas…The breezy recitatives and arias sung by Andrea Lauren Brown (Samuele) are adorable for their legato, effortless top notes and sincerity of delivery…This enjoyable recording is well defined and attractive

“The shrewd stage fox Mayr draws extensively on his own operas, creating some moments of great melodic appeal and bel cant flair…” (FONO FORUM, October 2012)
