About

The prodigious Norwegian treble Aksel Rykkvin returns to disc on Signum with a new disc of Baroque works, accompanying the MIN Ensemble under conductor and trumpeter Mark Bennett and their artistic director Lazar Miletic. Featuring both instrumental pieces and excerpts from operas and other works by Handel, Rameau, Albinoni and Rittler, this disc further documents Aksel’s unique talent as a performer.

Praise for Aksel’s previous release (Aksel! SIGCD435) and performances:

“A mature, musical performer [...] an accomplished and adult disc” - Gramophone

“A remarkable performance - pure,confident, technically perfect and hauntingly beautiful”
- Classic FM

“Freakishly good, with a musical assurance and richness of tone that are almost superhuman” - Financial Times

“A superb debut ... Exceptionally polished performances” - BBC Music Magazine
