Conductor James Feddeck
Trumpet Tine Thing Helseth

Aleksandra Pakhmutova Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra
Penderecki
Trumpet Concertino
Rachmaninov
Symphony No.2

Outstanding Norwegian trumpet phenomenon Tine Thing Helseth joins the APO for the first time to play two little-known but dazzling pieces.

Penderecki’s hugely entertaining Concertino includes a flugelhorn and a contralto trumpet which effortlessly evokes nostalgic, late-night jazz.

The Russian composer Aleksandra Pakhmutova wrote her Concerto in 1955, but it only took off in the West in the late 1970s. Her music is direct and tuneful, in the best Russian tradition, and it’s a terrific pairing with the profusion of melody in Rachmaninov’s sprawling, life-affirming symphony.
