I felt extremely honoured and grateful when I learned that I would receive a Borletti Buitoni Fellowship. Honoured because of the many great musicians that already belonged to this "family", and grateful for knowing that there exists such a wonderful organisation which helps artists in this very special way. I'm grateful for the help to buy a brand new Corno da caccia, a modern version of the old hunting horn for which you can find a lot of forgotten repertoire. I am also looking forward to starting the process of commissioning a work. The inspiration, enthusiasm and wonderful conversations with Susan and the rest of the people at the BBT are something I will take with me and always remember.Tine Thing Helseth"

Bent Sørensen Trumpet Concerto co-commissioned by Borletti-Buitoni Trust, premiere with Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra
"Much excitement was attached to the World Premiere of the Danish composer Bent Sørensen’s new Trumpet Concerto, commissioned for trumpet virtuoso Tine Thing Helseth... Inspired by Hummel's and Haydn's classical trumpet concertos, Sørensen has composed a robust work quite typical for our time – a work which I absolutely believe will find its place at the great concert venues in the time to come... first and foremost full of devious musical expressions which attracts attention and stimulates curiosity... Tine Thing Helseth performs magic with her trumpet."
