Another Breathtaking Success by Phenomenon Niklas Eklund 16 May 2007
By John A. Moskal II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Niklas Eklund, the baroque trumpet phenomenon returns with another superb representation of the baroque sound of the trumpet. He is here accompanied by the lovely singing of soprano Susanne Rydén whose voices weaves in and out with both the trumpet sound of Niklas Eklund and the ensemble playing of the London Baroque.

The technique displayed on this album is no less impressive than any of his previous if indeed it is not more so. My particular mention goes out to the duet between the two in the "Pace Una Volta" where Eklund's phrasing, sound, and technique remains flawless despite the length of breath required and the extreme range of the line. His articulation through the album seeks to augment and enhance the vocal line in every way possible. He never covers up the vocalist nor makes her to seem less important than himself, and indeed she reciprocates with the London Baroque completing the cast. The choice of repertoire here is slightly more obscure with the emphasis placed on soprano and trumpet duet rather than trumpet feature making this also a great addition to the collection of any connoisseur.

Once more, the NAXOS Label allows the purchase of this album with minimum damage to the wallet, thus making this again a must have for anyone with an interest in the area and not merely the focused student of early music.

Edges out Sony's phrase by phrase... 9 Jan 2013
By Abert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A disc of baroque soprano/trumpet duets. Both albums - Naxos and Sony - came out in the 1990's, with Sony a couple of years earlier, recruiting star soprano Kathleen Battle and star trumpet player Wynton Marsalis. Both were recorded with top technology.
I must say that this Naxos recording beats the Sony one by a full mile.
Both Naxos soloists are much more adept at the chosen repertory, overlapping by almost 85 per cent in content.
Let me put it this way - western opera has reached a brand new era, the 'B' era ('B' standing for baroque and bel canto), in the old 'V' era's stead ('V' for Verdi and verismo). Kathleen Battle stood somewhere between the 'V' and the 'B'. While she is a bel canto soprano, she is not exactly a baroque soprano. Susanna Ryden, on the other hand, is fully alert to the baroque vocal style.
The case is even more striking with regard to the trumpet parts. While Marsalis played a modern instrument, Eklund's is a baroque trumpet, and you simply hear the difference in sound and effect. The pieces chosen need to be played in their authentic style to bring out their musical contents and nuances.
Both Ryden and Eklund offered top-rate performances, so does the 'baroque' band accompanying them.
Unreservedly recommended.

Stunning 12 April 2008
By Jason Pellett - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the greatest recordings ever made, and certainly the best for this repetoire. Both Eklund and Ryden sound amazing, and their cohesion of interpretation and sound is absolutely stunning.
