13-year old Aksel Rykkvin is an extraordinarily talented treble from the Children’s Chorus of the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet and Oslo Cathedral Boys’ Choir. He has recently received international acclaim for his role in a new opera Elysium. The Financial Times wrote that he was "freakishly good, with a musical assurance and richness of tone that are almost superhuman." On this his debut album, he is joined by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in a programme of Bach, Handel and Mozart. It's a remarkable performance—pure, confident, technically perfect and hauntingly beautiful.
