Tine Thing Helseth: Life is 'like a dream come true'

On the red carpet, the trumpeter talks about being nominated Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Classic BRIT Awards.

Tine Thing Helseth started to play the trumpet at the age of seven and is one of the leading trumpet soloists of her generation.  

This year in addition to her hectic recording and performing schedule, she launched her own music festival in Norway marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of fellow Norwegian, the painter Edvard Munch.

"It gives me a lot of energy to do those things," Tine told Classic FM's Lucy Coward on the red carpet outside the Royal Albert Hall at this year's Classic BRIT Awards, 2 October 2013. "It's like a dream come true."

Tine has been nominated in the Breakthrough Artist of the Year category at this year's awards.

And as she tells Lucy, she's very grateful to her UK fans.
