Project Description

Aksel Rykkvin (Oslo, Norway) is a 13-year-old award-winning, classically trained boy soprano with extensive soloist and choir experience from the Children’s Chorus of the Norwegian National Opera and Oslo Cathedral Boys’ Choir from the age of five years. He is the most requested boy soloist in Norway for operas, festivals and concerts, has a large following in social media, and is becoming more and more recognized internationally. In 2017 he won the Norwegian Music Competition for Youth. 

Aksel’s first solo album, recorded with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in London, was released in September 2016 on Signum Classics. It was celebrated by critics in international magazines, received awards such as Diapason d’Or découverte, and led to a “Spellemann” award nomination for Aksel as “Newcomer of the Year”.
