Barry Kilpatrick
American Record Guide, August 2000

"After three wonderful recordings by Niklas Eklund (Sept/Oct 1998:284), it is no surprise to hear more of the same here. Performing on baroque trumpet (valveless but with one or more tone holes for trills and intonation correction), Eklund shows exquisite taste, elegance of articulation, tonal purity, and virtuoso technique in these accounts of works by German composers. Each is given a reading full of nuance and attention to detail. This account of Telemann's familiar Concerto 2 has the best balance between trumpet, two oboes, and bassoon I have heard."
