Notes and Editorial Reviews

The prodigious Norwegian treble Aksel Rykkvin returns to the recording studio with a new album of Baroque works, accompanying the MIN Ensemble under trumpeter Mark Bennett and the ensemble director Lazar Miletic. Featuring both instrumental pieces and excerpts from operas and oratorios by Handel, Rameau, Albinoni and Rittler, this release further documents Aksel’s unique talent as a performer and interpreter of Baroque music. Praise for Aksel’s previous release (Aksel!) and performances is widespread and positive: “A mature, musical performer [...] an accomplished and adult [release]” (Gramophone) “A remarkable performance - pure,confident, technically perfect and hauntingly beautiful” Classic FM “Freakishly good, with a musical assurance Read more and richness of tone that are almost superhuman” Financial Times “A superb debut ... Exceptionally polished performances” (BBC Music Magazine) Read less
