"There’s also an eclectic programme of Munch-inspired concerts from June 7, curated by the hip and prodigiously versatile Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth" (Financial Times, April 2013)

"Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth was a star of the Proms launch in London on Thursday, but her mind is also on her new Munch Music Festival in Oslo. (...) The festival in June includes the wonderfully speculative event "What kind of music might Munch have hummed to?", violinist Nicola Benedetti amongst the theorists" (The Independent, April 2013)

"Jeg har startet en ny festival knyttet til Munch-museet i Oslo. Dette har vært min drøm lenge, og akkurat nå er jeg kjempeglad fordi så mange har sagt ja til å delta 7.-9. juni: Leif Ove Andsnes, Truls Mørk, Kathryn, sopranen Isa Katharina Gericke, Ingrid Bjørnov med flere. Vi skal spille musikk som Edvard Munch hadde et forhold til." (Aftenbladet, March 2013)

"In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of fellow Norwegian Edvard Munch, Tine is also curating Tine@Munch, a three day festival in the Edvard Munch Museum in Oslo in June 2013." (4barsrest.com, March 2013)

"The Munch museum is very close to where I grew up and I suddenly thought, why has nobody thought of it as a music venue before? I’m trying to use some of Munch’s writings and paintings to see if we can link his ideas to the music, and think about the music in a different way."(Telegraph, March 2013)

"But even the naturally reticent musician couldn’t disguise her excitement as she announced her new festival, Tine@Munch. (...) Helseth’s excitement seems to be contagious – she has managed to bring on board several renowned musicians including Leif Ove Andsnes, Truls Mørk, Nicola Benedetti and Charlie Siem." (Gramophone, March 2013)

"Det er veldig gøy og spennende å være kunstnerisk leder. Jeg var veldig heldig. Alle musikerne jeg spurte både kunne og ville være med. Leif Ove Andsnes, Truls Mørk, Nicola Benedetti, Ingrid Bjørnov og Charlie Siem er noen av dem. Jeg er stolt av listen min!" (VG Helg, March 2013)

"Helseth has managed to recruit a stellar line-up for her first festival. As well as performing solo & with her quintet, Tine will be sharing the bill with eight top-class performers, including C Music TV favourites Charlie Siem, Leif Ove Andsnes & Nicola Benedetti. Helseth is clearly excited about this new venture, stating that 'to be able to present a festival in the heart of Edvard Munch's art is a privilege'. " (Cmusic.tv, March 2013)

"Den profilerte trompetisten Tine Thing Helseth blir kunstnerisk leder for festivalen tine@munch. (...) Helseth tok kontakt med museumsdirektør Stein Olav Henrichsen, og etter dialog med museet og hennes medarrangør Backstage produksjon ble festivaldrømmen virkelig." (Aftenposten, September 2012)

"Tine Thing Helseth inviterer til musikkfestival på Munch-museet. Fra fredag 7. til søndag 9. juni 2013
blir Munch-museet fylt av tonene til noen av verdens ledende klassiske utøvere." (Omtale på Munch-museets nettsider)
