Following her 2013 BBC Proms debut performance of Matthias Pintscher’s Chute d’étoiles with the BBC Scottish Symphony, Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth has rapidly established herself as one of the foremost trumpet soloists of our time, garnering critical acclaim for her soulful, lyrical sound and collaborative approach to music-making.
An artist who challenges the boundaries of genre with an intensely creative, open-minded philosophy, Tine has worked with some of the world’s leading orchestras to date, including the Bamberger Symphoniker, NDR Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, SWR Symphonieorchester Stuttgart, Gürzenich-Orchester Cologne, Tonkünstler-Orchester Vienna, Philharmonia, BBC Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Danish Radio Symphony, Bergen Philharmonic, Helsinki Philharmonic, Gothenburg Symphony, Swedish Radio Symphony, and the Orchestre philharmonique de Luxembourg. Tine also enjoys working with an increasing number of chamber orchestras, namely the Munich Chamber, Australian Chamber, and Zurich Chamber orchestras, as well as the Mozarteum Salzburg and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta.
Tine also continues embarking on regular tours with her ten-piece, all-female brass ensemble, tenThing. An idea that started in 2007 as a fun and exciting project to pursue with her closest musical friends, the group have gone on to play to numerous European audiences (past festival appearances include Schleswig-Holstein, Beethoven Bonn, Gstaad, MDR Musiksommer, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Rheingau, Merano, Thüringer Bachwochen, and Bremen). tenThing make their North American and Paris debuts in 2017, with concerts in New York, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., and at the Wolftrap, St Denis, Gstaad, and I Suoni delle Dolomiti festivals.
