Treble Aksel Johannes Skramstad Rykkvin sings "Alleluia" from "Exsultate, jubilate" (W.A.Mozart) during the opening concert of Røros Organ Festival 2015. Accompanist: festival director and cantor Stephen Hicks. Sept. 21th, 2015, Røros Church.
Aksel is a boy soloist with the Children’s Chorus of the Norwegian National Opera ("Barnekoret ved Den Norske Opera & Ballett") and Oslo Cathedral Boys’ Choir ("Oslo Domkirkes Guttekor"). Voice teachers: Marianne Willumsen Lewis and Helene Haarr. Aksel is also a student at music grammar school "Musikk på Majorstuen".
I’m following this wonderful Norwegian treble’s career with great interest – he has a purity of tone and sureness of vocal control that makes his singing a pleasure to listen to and testifies not only to the presence of talent but to a lot of very hard work to develop it. Enjoy :-).
