Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Bob Jones' pioneering podcast series dedicates time to the artists and organisations that make the classical world turn - this week he talks to Tine Thing Helseth.
At the age of 20 Tine Thing Helseth is already a seasoned performer. She started playing the trumpet at the age of 7, and shot to international attention coming second in the Eurovision Young Musician competition two years ago. Her debut CD is released outside her native Norway this month. Classic FM's Anne-Marie Minhall probes her career to date; plus we hear more about this year's Brighton Festival. Classical Music programmer Gill Kay outlines her vision for this year's event.
