The trumpet takes centre stage in Gustav Mahler's Blumine, a passionate love serenade initially conceived as a movement from his First Symphony. The trumpet is also featured in Pattern Recognition, with American composer Nico Muhly seamlessly blending commissions from major orchestras, bridging classical and popular genres. His latest composition promises to be a lyrical and explosive work—a world premiere performed by one of the finest trumpeters of the moment. Tine Thing Helseth captivates with her trumpet, reaching straight to the heart. In Hector Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, passion ignites. Initially described as an autobiographical love story, this symphony takes listeners on a 'fantastic' musical journey, from ballroom to witches' sabbath and scaffold, with original and daring orchestral sounds.
