The young Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth tells stories of love and loss on her solo debut CD for EMI Classics. She performs a programme of songs by Grieg, Strauss, Sibelius, Ravel, Canteloube and Weill, among others, transcribed for trumpet with either piano or orchestral accompaniment. Tine s musical collaborators are pianist Håvard Gimse and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Eivind Aadland.
I ve been playing songs in recital for two or three years now and they are always very special to me , said Tine recently. Although you lose the words, you have to play as though they were still there. To move an audience with a very simple tune is one of the hardest things to do yet it is a wonderful feeling. EMI Classics Vice President of A&R Andrew Cornall, who also produced this recording said, Tine is playing the trumpet but she s also the singer. The disc shows off her immense artistry, her range of colour and dynamics and the beauty of her tone.
Edvard Grieg s song cycle Haugtussa, based on the epic poem cycle by the Norwegian writer Arne Garborg is at the heart of the CD. It is a favourite of Tine s and the reason she wanted her first EMI disc to feature song transcriptions. When you read the [Haugtussa] poems, there is a happy ending but, for some reason, Grieg chose to make the ending sad. All eight songs are beautiful but so different in character. The music deserves to shine by itself. Grieg is an obvious choice for a Norwegian performer but the other songs on the CD, by German, French, Russian and Czech composers, are equally compelling. The surprise on this disc is perhaps the inclusion of Epílogo (Noche de luna) by the Spanish composer José María Cano (b1959).
Tine Thing Helseth was born in Oslo. Her mother was an amateur trumpeter and there is a strong tradition of wind bands in primary schools in Norway so it was not unusual that she began to study the trumpet at the age of seven. When Tine began to attend evening classes at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo, she was introduced to the world of classical music and to string players and pianists who enabled her to expand her musical interpretations through familiarity with a wide variety of non-brass sounds. (Another graduate of the Barratt Due Institute is the violinist Vilde Frang, also an exclusive EMI Classics artist.)
Today, at the age of 24, Tine Thing Helseth is one of the leading trumpeters of her generation. A sensation in Scandinavia, where she has performed extensively as a classical soloist, leader of the ten-member all-female brass ensemble tenThing and jazz musician, she is equally at home in each role and genre. As a classical performer, she has won numerous prizes and previously recorded two CDs on the Norwegian Simax label to popular and critical acclaim. The second album, My Heart is Ever Present, a collection of her favourite Christmas songs and hymns released in 2009, went to Gold in the Norwegian classical chart in only three weeks. In the UK, Tine is the recipient of the 2009 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship.
In the past few years, Tine has performed with the Vienna, Shanghai and BBC Scottish symphony orchestras, with the chamber orchestras of Vienna, Zurich and Stuttgart, and with orchestras in Germany, Belgium and France. She made recital debuts at the National Gallery in Washington, DC and at Carnegie Hall s Weill Recital Hall. She gave her first performance at the Royal Albert Hall as part of Classic FM Live in March 2011.
In 2011/2012, Tine returns to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and the Danish Radio Symphony and makes debuts with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo, Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra, NDR Hamburg, Kollegium Winterthur Orchestra, Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen Orchestra and Hong Kong Sinfonietta.
