Tine Thing Helseth & Gunnar Flagstad I


A double concert with Norway's trumpet queen.
Tine Thing Helseth has a CV to take most people's breath away. Only 30 years old, she has a gold album, has won numerous stipends and awards including Norway's Grammy, the coveted Spellemannspris, has made her Proms debut, has performed as a soloist with an impressive array of major orchestras, has founded and toured worldwide with the ensemble tenThing and has created her own festival.
Her career took off at the age of 18 when she gained second prize in the Eurovision Young Musicians Competition. In these two recitals in Troldsalen she is accompanied by the accomplished pianist Gunnar Flagstad, who has toured extensively and performed on radio and television.
The first recital features transcribed songs, highlighting melodic beauty. They tell powerful stories in a variety of classical genres alongside tango and Berlin cabaret from the interwar period.
The second recital showcases a wealth of trumpet virtuosity unfamiliar to most: classical songs, Romanian dances and demanding modernism. Helseth and Flagstad also play tango, tease our inner eye with Morricone's Cinema Paradiso and bring us Joni Mitchell's lyrical masterpiece Both Sides Now.
