Notes & Reviews:

Norwegian boy-soprano Aksel Rykvvin has quickly built a reputation as a rare talent, combining an intelligent musicality with a beautifully resonan ttreble voice. On his debut recording he is accompanied by The Orchestra of the Age of Englightenment under Nigel Short. Many of the arias performed are considered too technically demanding for boy singesr in the present day.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: St Augustines Church, Kilburn, London (01/17/2016-01/22/2016).
