We caught up with the Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth so she could take us through her ten favourite pieces for her instrument, including works by Haydn, Hindemith and Puccini.
"It's THE concerto for every trumpet player. I've played it many, many times, but I think the first time with an orchestra was when I was 16. There's just something about it - I've spoken to other instrumentalists, not just trumpet players, and I really think that this is the best solo concerto that Haydn wrote. It's perfect in all the proportions, I love how the voices interact, it's like knitting! I always hear something new. You could probably wake me up in the middle of the night and I could still play it backwards."
