Borletti-Buitoni Trust

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"
Tine Thing Helseth’s performing highlights of the 2012/13 season included debuts with the Zurich Chamber, Dresden Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, Munich Symphony, Prague Radio Symphony and Sioux City orchestras. Tine made her BBC Proms concerto debut at the Royal Albert Hall in the London premiere of Matthias Pintscher’s Chute d’Étoiles. With her all-female brass ensemble, tenThing, she also made her BBC Chamber Proms debut at Cadogan Hall. Tine returned to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Ulster orchestras for the third time, as well as enjoying re-invitations from the Stavanger Symphony and Kristiansand Symphony orchestras; and she premiered a new concerto by Britta Byström with the Nordic Chamber Orchestra. As a recitalist, Tine toured the UK, Norway, France and Finland, culminating in her acclaimed debut at London’s Wigmore Hall. She released her third CD on EMI Classics, entitled Tine and, in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of fellow Norwegian, Edvard Munch, she launched the inaugural Tine@Munch festival in June 2013. This season, Tine Thing Helseth will give the world premieres of Bent Sørensen’s Trumpet Concerto with the Bergen Philharmonic, Gothenburg Symphony and Copenhagen Philharmonic orchestras, with the support of Borletti-Buitoni Trust. Upcoming debuts include performances with SWR Stuttgart, BBC NOW, Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg, and Gürzenich and Bremen Philharmonic orchestras; and her recital debut at Baltimore’s Shriver Hall. Tine will return to the Oslo Philharmonic and Kristiansand Symphony orchestras, as well as to the Musikkollegium Winterthur. With tenThing, she will debut at Moscow's renowned International House of Music, and will tour the prestigious MDR Musiksommer, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and Schleswig-Holstein festivals.
