Tine Thing Helseth on music for trumpet and organ

The trumpeter discusses her new album, 'Magical Memories'

Tine Thing Helseth's new album - out on Friday May 28 - is a beautiful programme of works for trumpet and organ, some familiar, some bound to be new discoveries for many listeners. As the trumpeter herself puts it: 'Many of the pieces are music that a lot of us associate with special events in life, both festive and more serious. Music can often be liberating and help us deal with our feelings. At weddings, funerals and at other significant moments, music elevates and underscores the mood.' Recorded with organist Kåre Nordstoga and released on the Lawo label, it's the subject of this week's Podcast, for which Helseth joined Gramophone Editor Martin Cullingford.
