Format: Audio CD
This cd is, by far the best trumpet cd I own. His control in all registers, especially his trills, is unreal. Niklas Eklund has gone beyond merely acomplishing the right notes. It sounds better than anything I've heard with valves. This is, however, not just a technical show. His phrasing, particularly in the Telemann, is fabulous. The longer note values in the trecherous technical passages in the second and fourth movements is refreshing. For anyone who has ever played a baroque trumpet or just likes good music, this is a must.

Format: Audio CD
The desire for period instrument recordings is now reaching higher and farther than before in this country (indeed, though, it is still surpassed by that of Europe). Here we have the premiere example of the gorgeous playing of Niklas Eklund on the baroque trumpet repertoire, who here is all but unreachable from the point of technique, phrasing, and sound.

As a trumpet player, I personally understand difficulties of performing this repertoire on the baroque trumpet which Niklas, as a fourth generation trumpeter, does not notice (when I saw him live this became more clear than ever it was). His trills are to be envied by a valved trumpet and his sound quality is ever constant and beautiful at all registers in his playing. His phrasing is both period appropriate and moving. He does not over embellish or perform in a showy manner, but rather he emotes. The moving quality of his playing left me speechless upon the first hearing of this album. Here the Telemann concerto in particular deserves recognition especially in the Adagio movement, for where many trumpeters fall apart he continues growing and moving through to the last note.

The selection of repertoire is fairly standard and these are pieces that anyone familiar with the baroque trumpet repertoire might be expected to know, after all, though, it is but his first album. Repertoire is, however, as stated, the only thing "standard" about this recording. The playing by the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble matches the quality by Eklund and the two work together flawlessly. Regardless of how many other recordings there are of this repertoire out there, this one is the one above all others that you should own if you are intent upon discovering this music, and I give this both as a trumpet player and avid music fan.

... when it succumbed to the temptation of piston valves in the early 19th C. What it gained was a few extra notes in its drab fundamental register, plus the possibility of playing more closely in tune with equal temperament, plus an easier technique to master. What it gave up was its maidenly virtue, its angelic singing timbre and flexibility in its upper stratocirrus partials. Modern trumpeters, who have felt their chops at risk on the highest passages of Bach and other Baroque composers, have turned to a shorter tube, the so-called Bach trumpet, a kazoo with valves. If you think I'm being tendentious here (snarky, for younger readers), you're correct. But after you've listened to the five volumes of Niklas Ekland's "The Art of the Baroque Trumpet", you may find yourself agreeing with me.

Eklund learned trumpet exactly as a trumpeter of the 17th C would have... from his trumpeter father, beginning at age five. In fact, he is the fourth generation of Eklund trumpeters. I doubt there was ever any other way to learn the instrument. Trumpeters were highly-prized and well-paid throughout Europe in the centuries of the Renaissance and Baroque; they had their own guilds and their own traditions. As Eklund says, the technique needed to play baroque trumpet is quite different from that of modern trumpet, and it isn't automatic that one will give you the other. The trumpet Eklund plays on these CDs is a modern 'copy' made by Reiner Egger of an instrument made around 1700 by Johann Leonard Ehe II, perhaps also a fourth-generation craftsman. The historical natural trumpet played most comfortably in mean-tone. The 'baroque trumpet' of common use today has one or more small holes drilled in the tubing, which can be covered and uncovered by the player's fingers.

In this recording we have the opportunity to a number of concerti and two sonatas for baroque trumpet.Trumpeter E.Eklund plays works from the baroque on a period trumpet.From a Sonata by Torelli to a concerto by Leopold Mozart (The father of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) to which Mr. Eklund wrote his own cadenza.Considering the fact that the baroque trumpet is a difficult instrument to play,Mr. Eklund dominates this instrument with such a virtuosity and a n impecable technique...Indeed a five stars recording.

That Latin phrase sums it up nicely - which I will paraphrase: "The Tops!" I have loved this recording from the first luscious note that comes forth from this god of the trumpet! I always figured with Naxos that if it isnt good, I have only lost 7 bucks. However, I would now gladly pay three times that for this recording, as well as the others in the series.

The recording sound is also jaw dropping: clear and luminous in a way that few recordings are. It was recorded in the perfectly preserved Baroque theater in Drottningholm Castle in Sweden.

I second everything said in earlier reviews, and say "get this disc!!!" You will smile from the first note, as I did.
