5.0 out of 5 stars Great misic 27 Nov 2012
By Keith
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a great collection of music. Played by all with inspiration, passion and innovation. T T H and her friends have brought something different to the world. If you have any liking for brass bands you have to give this a go. Really good to listen to at any time of day. 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening 20 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This c.d could, well deservedly, be called 'ten out of ten'!, this is easy listening of the highest quality. The musicians joint effort to interpret each piece have succeeded in opening up the field of classical music to a wider public, I'm sure.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT TO MY TASTE 4 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A previous CD issued by Ten was of very high standard, programme wise and ability. I think this new release fails for me on
programme, that is the reason for 3 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely played, but bland 22 Dec 2012
By Teemacs TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Make no mistake, this particular collection of brassy females can certainly play. However, I found both the choice of pieces and the arrangements to be fairly ordinary and not particularly exciting. It's not the sort of thing to which I would listen that often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Average Girl Group 5 July 2012
By Dr. Christopher Coleman - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Girl groups playing popular classics seem to be a dime a dozen lately, from Bond to 12 Girls Band, but tenThing brings something new to the mix. Instead of allowing marketing teams to spice everything up with sex appeal and rock and roll elements, this group of 10 female brass players, led by trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth, simply focuses on the music. Hailing from Norway, tenThing nods toward their heritage on this CD with three short pieces by Edvard Grieg. But they venture a bit further afield in time and space, from Mozart's Rondo alla Turca, to selections from Astor Piazzola's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. It is all beautifully played, and there's not a synthesizer or drum set to be heard.

Rather than the large ensembles familiar to American brass players, consisting of the orchestral brass of 3 or 4 trumpets, 4 horns, 3 trombones, and tuba and complemented with euphonium and percussion, tenThing's instrumentation of is a more modest size common in Europe and Japan, of three trumpets, four trombones, and one each of flugelhorn, French horn and tuba. As a trombonist myself I have heard a lot of brass playing, and I am very favorably impressed with tenThing. They are capable of expressive subtlety and biting power, and have an excellent blend of sound among the various instruments and performers. Their ensemble playing is spot on throughout--just listen to a bit of Albeniz's Asturias and you'll hear what I mean. It's a piece we usually hear on guitar, and I love the way the arrangement translates the repeated plucked notes to brass. All of the arrangements are apparently by Jarle Storlokken, who operates with a very sensitive ear and a delicate touch. My only criticism is the programming's lack of adventure--these are all popular classics with a light touch, beautifully played, but there's nothing that approaches the profound. Which is not to say it's superficial, but I'd love to hear this group take their collective gloves off and bite into something meatier, to mix a metaphor. Piazzola's the most current and interesting composer on the disc, and there is so much more fascinating music out there. But maybe I am just being a curmudgeon, and I should be satisfied with the lovely performances on this disc!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performances by an outstanding brass ensemble led by trumpet master Tine Thing Helseth! 4 April 2012
By goodmusicman - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This EMI album, called "10," is the debut recording by the all-female Norwegian brass ensemble tenThing, which is led by the phenomenal trumpet player Tine Thing Helseth. I have already reviewed Helseth's four previous albums, including Storyteller, so I will just add here that Helseth is absolutely up to her already-established very high standards of playing. What is unique to this album are the other nine players, each of whom seems to play with pitch-perfect intonation and a well-rounded, polished sound. The players display a remarkable range of color and style throughout these varied works as well as impressive virtuosity. I don't know exactly how Helseth is able to lead this group while playing the trumpet but she does and the ensemble plays in perfect sync throughout this album.

The works are mostly arrangements for brass ensemble of famous works, such as the best parts of Bizet's Carmen, Albeniz's Asturias, three songs by Grieg (including March of the Dwarfs from the op. 54 Lyric Suite), two works by Piazzolla, and Mozart's famous Rondo alla Turca. These works are enjoyable in various arrangements but the versions heard here may well be the most "FUN" of them all. You'll want to listen to the Bizet Carmen suite over and over again and each time you do, it will bring a smile to your face. The virtuosity displayed in the Mozart arrangement is simply astounding. The other arrangements are just as fun and enjoyable. They are all easy on the ear and at no point does one feel that something is lacking due to this being all brass instruments with no strings, etc. On the contrary: everything sounds just right, almost as though these works were originally composed for brass ensemble. There is also the Brass Suite from The ThreePenny Opera by Weill, played to absolute perfection here, with just the right amount of humor and lots of, well, brass power! The Brass Symphony by Koetsier is a real find and tenThing is certainly in comfortable territory playing this work written for just such an ensemble. The same can be said for the last work on the CD, also by Koetsier. This is music you will want to listen to repeatedly and it will give you a boost each time you hear it.

For those familiar with Helseth's previous releases, the standout of this CD will be her few solo moments, which are immediately discernible (due to her unique tone--see my previous reviews), although there are not enough of them. However, this album's concept is a team effort and the unity of this ensemble really pays off. (The liner notes feature an interesting discussion about gender equality in Norway and how an all-female brass ensemble wouldn't be feasible in some other countries.) The sound quality provided by EMI is simply perfect: clear and sharp, excellent dynamic range, and a real sense that these performers are playing, live, in your room! We can only hope for more outstanding releases by this wonderful ensemble in the near future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Tine Solo type disc. 30 Dec 2012
By russell nusbickel - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because I love Tine Thing's other albums.
I knew that this was more of a Brass Band album but I love Brass Band anyway.
All of the Musicians (women) are outstanding and their blend is superb.
My only complaint ( if complaint is the right word) would be for the selections (or maybe the arrangements) although the Three Penny Opera was interesting
I know reviewers have stated that personal like or dislikes shouldn't be in reviews
but I think sometimes it's needed.
Fans of Tine may want this in their collection.
