Preview: Tine Thing Helseth – Arutiunian Trumpet Concerto by Singapore Symphony Orchestra
Acclaimed Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth makes her Singapore debut next January as she presents one of the best-loved of 20th century trumpet showpieces: Arutiunian’s Trumpet Concerto at the Esplanade Concert Hall.
Conducted by former Chief Conductor to the Basque National Orchestra Jun Märkl, Arutiunian’s Trumpet Concerto is best known as a vigorous display of Armenian lyricism and flavour. Other songs in the lineup include the Singapore premiere of Saint-Saëns’ Suite Algérienne, Op. 60, as well as De Falla’s Three-Cornered Hat, Ravel’s Alborada and Bolero, a jaunty number no doubt set to get you on your feet and dancing away.
As one of the foremost trumpet soloists of our time, come watch as the first ever classical artist nominated for a Norwegian Grammy® Award enchants you with her soulful, lyrical sound in this trumpet concerto to remember.
Tine Thing Helseth – Arutiunian Trumpet Concerto takes place on 5th Janury 2019 at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Tickets available from SISTIC
