The rousing brilliance and reflective sheen of the trumpet propels Orpheus into its second half-century! Luminous trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth returns with Hummel’s masterpiece of classical clarity, and Orpheus brings back symphonies that helped define the group’s effervescent sound in its concerts and recordings from the 1980s. A new fanfare by composer and horn virtuoso Jeff Scott honors this landmark anniversary.

About the artists

Tine Thing Helseth

Since the beginning of her career, Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth has championed the trumpet repertoire amongst audiences on all six continents, meriting the highest critical praise 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’s ever-expanding repertoire ranges from the classical period to contemporary works and new commissions.

She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her work in classical music, including “Newcomer of the Year” at the 2013 Echo Klassik Awards, the 2009 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, and second prize in the 2006 Eurovision Young Musicians Competition, to which Tine returned to serve as juror for the 2016 competition. In 2007, Tine had the rare honour of being the first ever classical artist to win Newcomer of the Year at the Norwegian Grammy® Awards (Spellemannprisen).

Tine has worked with some of the world's leading orchestras, including the Bamberger Symphoniker, NDR Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Gürzenich-Orchester Cologne, Tonkünstler-Orchester Vienna, Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Scottish Orchestra at the BBC Proms, Warsaw, Rotterdam, Oslo, Bergen and Helsinki Philharmonic orchestras, Danish Radio Symphony orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Baltimore and Cincinnati Symphony orchestras, Singapore Symphony, KBS Symphony and Hong Kong Philharmonic. She also enjoys collaborating with a number of chamber orchestras, namely the Norwegian Chamber, Zurich Chamber and Munich Chamber orchestras, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Australian Chamber Orchestra, and as well as the Orchestre de chambre de Lausanne, Mozarteum Salzburg, and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta.

Performances in recent seasons include MiTo Festival with Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai, debut with Minnesota Orchestra, return to Bergen Philharmonic, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Odense Symphony and Norwegian Opera Orchestra, as well as European tour with Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, and six performances at the Bergen International Festival and a recital at Mogens Dahl Koncertsal in Copenhagen.

Tine continues to embark on regular tours with her ten-piece, all-female brass ensemble tenThing. An idea which 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 audiences across Europe, USA and China. Past festival appearances include the BBC Proms, Schleswig-Holstein, Beethoven Bonn, Gstaad, MDR Musiksommer, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Rheingau, Merano, Thüringer Bachwochen, and Bremen. This year sees tenThing return to Germany and the US.

In 2012, Tine recorded an album "Storyteller" with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, released on the EMI Classics label. Tine released a further, self-titled CD in March 2013, presenting a personal selection of original and transcribed works, accompanied by pianist Kathryn Stott.

Tine resides in Oslo and maintains an active role in her community as a regular TV and radio presenter, and teaches trumpet at the Norwegian Academy of Music. An all-round musician, she also regularly performs in some of the most iconic jazz bars in Norway. In June 2013, Tine launched her own project, Tine@Munch, in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch, featuring a variety of performances and guest artists such as Leif Ove Andsnes, Nicola Benedetti, and Truls Mork. Since 2019, she is a member of Artistic Board at Risør Chamber Music Festival.

Jeff Scott

Composer and Imani Winds member Jeffrey Scott is a native of Queens, NY. He started the French horn at age 14, receiving an anonymous gift scholarship to go to the Brooklyn College Preparatory Division. An even greater gift came from his first teacher, Carolyn Clark, who taught the young Mr. Scott for free during his high school years, giving him the opportunity to study music when resources were not available. He received his bachelor's degree from Manhattan School of Music (studying with David Jolley), and master's degree from SUNY at Stony Brook (studying with William Purvis). During those years Mr. Scott studied with Jerome Ashby, David Jolley, Scott Brubaker and William Purvis. He later continued his horn studies with Scott Brubaker and the late Jerome Ashby.

Mr. Scott's arranging and composing credits are many, and include scoring the off-Broadway production of Becoming Something, The Canada Lee Story, the staged production of Josephine Baker: A Life of Le Jazz Hot!, and many arrangements and original works for solo winds, wind and brass quintet, horn quartet, and jazz ensembles. Mr. Scott's works are published by International Opus and Trevco Music.

Mr. Scott has been on the horn faculty of the music department at Montclair State University (New Jersey) since 2002.
