Tine Thing Helseth started to play trumpet at the age of seven, and, at age 23, she is already one of the leading trumpet soloists of her generation. In her short career, Ms. Helseth has already appeared as a soloist with, amongst others, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Philharmonie Baden-Baden, all the major Norwegian orchestras and further afield with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra.
For her debut recording with EMI Classics, Tine Thing Helseth takes on the mantle of story teller through her interpretation and repertoire curation. This collection of songs transcribed for trumpet includes music by Strauss, Sibelius, Ravel, Canteloube and Weill, and is anchored by Grieg’s Haugtussa song-cycle.
