    Does anyone have any thoughts on the young Norwegian trumpet player, Tine Thing Helseth? She has a Trumpet Concertos CD out, and is only in her early twenties. I found her playing on this recording to be refreshingly original.

    I came across her a few weeks ago. Her tone is beautiful.

    She is from Norway and has a nice style. I heard her in London last year. She could possibly be the next Alison Balsom.

    Definitely a fine player. Where Alison Balsom is following a dedicated soloist career, TTH also has an amazing ensemble - tenThing. It takes an extraordinary amount of musical and organizational talent to keep ensembles alive. Bravo!

    I won't get into a discussion about what is necessary to become "world class". For my ears her playing is fine and I expect that her interpretation will mature and THAT will probably make future solo recordings attractive for me. I am pretty much immune to the marketing maschine that is spinning for her. It is wonderful that we get a glimpse of such talent though.

    Truly inspirational! Anbefalt!

    Tedh!

    Just in case your computer seems to write odd words again:

    "Anbefalt" = "Recommended"

    Thanks Nordlands - rotten computer was acting up - just a little. There is something to be said for lovely blonde trumpeters, eh? :oops:
