Check out Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth. She’s been playing for sixteen years, (since she was 7) and it shows. She’s got a lively, bright tone, and in the vid below she plays the Rachmaninoff beautifully.  I just found out about her, but clearly she’s been around for a bit. From her site (snip):

Tine Thing Helseth

In recognition of her outstanding performing abilities Tine has been the recipient of various awards including the 2009 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, “Newcomer of the Year” at the 2007 Norwegian Grammy Awards (the first classical artist ever to be nominated), second prize in the 2006 Eurovision Young Musicians Competition, the Luitpold Prize as the most outstanding and interesting young artist of the year at the Kissinger Summer Festival, and the prestigious Prince Eugen’s Culture Prize in Stockholm.

It’s so great to discover new stuff. In one listen to the video below I learned about both a new trumpeter and a new piece of music, both of which have been around for a while, though Tine is a bit younger than Rachmaninoff.

Thanks for the  music, Ms. Helseth!
