Trumpet Concertos by Haydn, Hummel, Neruda, and Weber, by Niklas Eklund ★★★★★

These are four  baroque and classical trumpet concertos, with only the piece by Dedrich Weber being written for a valved trumpet. These are played by Eklun on a modern valved trumpet. Eklund has a few legendary trumpeters to compete with, the most recent being the masterful performances of Wynton Marsalis. Yet, Eklund holds his own, have a fluid, very non-brassy tone to his instrument that is most pleasurable to listen to. To put it bluntly, Eklund’s performance is quite stupendous. Naxos offers very affordable recordings, and these are most worthy of a classical collection.
