This week’s video is another example of the natural trumpet (see posts from 1-20 and 4-21). Trumpeter Niklas Eklund and soprano soloist Susanne Ryden both perform incredibly! Composer Luca Antonio Predieri originally wrote this aria in 1740. Listen for the beautiful singing quality of Eklund’s tone, especially when he enters the upper register. Also listen for the wonderful musical interplay between trumpet and voice.
