Overview

Naxos' pleasurable series of Baroque trumpet music continues apace with Volume Five, devoted entirely to the Italian repertory. As on previous installments, trumpeter Niklas Eklund offers a mixture of familiar and rare gems. A zippy performance of Vivaldi's popular Concerto for Two Trumpets opens the disc, assisted by Jeffrey Segal, who returns at the end for a charmingly tuneful two-trumpet Sonata by the little-known composer Franceschini. But the disc's real treasures are the arias, which are interspersed between each of the instrumental selections. Voice and trumpet was a favorite combination of Baroque composers, and listening to the pure tone of soprano Maria Keohane soaring in tandem with Eklund's gleaming sound, one can easily understand why. There is a gratifying variety of arias, too, including a pair by Vivaldi, others by Ziani and Galuppi, and an especially rousing piece with two trumpets by Albinoni. The celebratory character of most of these works makes this recording well -suited for the holidays, though it is music that can be enjoyed year-round.
