Last night Alexander Rybak set the final closing of the 15-year jubilee for Spanish-Norwegian Days and he did it with style in Casa de Cultura in Alfaz del Pi.

The culture house was full and it was a joyful reunion with Rybak, the musician who handles – and asserts himself – in most genres. So too yesterday. 

On stage were also the pianist Stefan Ibsen Zlatanos and the singers Victoria Bakka and Pepi Lloret.

Review of Alexander Rybak’s concert in Ostrava, Czech Republic

The Eurovision winner instead of a lecture

On Saturday, October 15, we could see the cinema “Vesmír” as we’ve never seen it before. There were no empty seats, after all some people even stood behind. Economic lectures were replaced by the winner of Eurovision 2009 – Alexander Rybak!

 Alexander not only sings and dances, but also accompanies on the violin. Sometimes all at once. He brought with him four very energetic dancers from Lithuania, who helped him to create the whole picture of his performance . There is joy and positive energy in all his songs. Maybe that’s why he conquered the audience during the first song. There was singing, clapping, snapping their fingers… whatever was needed.

I found out about the concert in Karlshamn in february/march by a friend who’s in the orchestra. I was still living in Newcastle by then and I did not know if I’d be able to go. But what a temptation it was! A while later I unfortunately had to move back home again but it meant that I could see the concert. Karlshamn is a place full of memories, my first concert took place there and a few months later I was there again. Continue reading Meeting Alexander in Karlshamn — a Fan Fairytale

CANCELLED – Alexander to perform at Benefit Gala in Dallas, Texas

We have got a message from he organizer of the charity concert:

“Sorry to inform you that this event has been cancelled. The contract with Alexander was signed and everything was in order, but unfortunately the biggest sponsor had to withdraw the support. Postponment was an option for Alexander, but the organizer didn’t see any possible new sponsor in the nearest future, so they decided to cancel instead.

As a replacement another organizer was contacted for a regular concert, and he was interested. But after a while he had to say no too, unfortunately.  So by now the trip to Texas is a bit out in the blue. Sorry for this. “

Alexander Rybak in the theatre play “Soot-Spelet” 2015

Engebret Soot was a big admirer of the famous Norwegian violinist Ole Bull. In the theatre play “Soot-Spelet” there is a scene where Engebret Soot travels to Oslo for one of his concerts. He was delayed and the concert was over when he arrived.  Engebret Soot was not a man who gave in easily, so he went to the hotel where Ole Bull stayed, woke him up  and demanded him to play for him.

Alexander Rybak in Charity concert for Mercy Ships

Videos from the concert uploaded to AlexanderRybakVideo

Highlights from the the preparation for the concert, some of the speech during the concert and some songs by Alexander.

Article below

Mercy Ships gathered over a 1000 people

Erling Natvig in Mercy Ships hoped for a miracle when they invited people to a concert with tickets costing a thousand NOK each. Over a thousand people showed up at Grieghallen on Monday evening, which the head of the organisation was satisfied with.

We don`t know the final result yet, but we`ll get a fantastic surplus, he says.

Skjermbilde 2015-01-22 kl. 22.21.58

Performed for free

Alexander Rybak was one of the artists that performed for free for Mercy Ships. He writes in a text message that he likes to work with nice people and that Natvig did a great job explaining the concept to him.

Natvig said before the concert that the contact with Rybak was established at an airport. They had never met before, but Natvig was bold and got in touch. Three hours later he got an SMS from the artist where he asked for an e-mail.

Mercy Ships had to change course because of the Ebola epidemic.

For free 

Rybak writes that the concert went even better than he had expected and that he particularly enjoyed playing together with Ung Symfoni.

Several artists performed for free for Mercy Ships, Carl Espen Thorbjørnsen, Josefin Winther and Roda Achieng. In addition to Ung Symfoni a group of 40 strings from 9-11 years old took part too.

Will there be a concert in Bergen next year too?
I think so. One of the important things for us is to make the work known. In Bergen we, among other things, got to meet a company that wants to give some of their proceeds to our work. This is how we see the effect of the concert right away.

Old concept 

The concept isn’t new. Five years ago the organisation held a charity concert with artists like A-ha and Secret Garden, to mention just a few. Last year they missed 2000 NOK to get 1 million NOK in surplus in an evening in Kristiansand.

Will the ticket always cost a thousand NOK?
It’s the price we normally charge. We do it a bit a bit differently from others, the artists get nothing and we get a lot. I think that`s fun for them,too.

Around 50 volunteers participated in connection with the concert, for which Natvig is very grateful.

A little fan report.

It was a great atmosphere and a well visited concert hall. People had gathered to support a good cause and enjoy the music. Alexander first did a session with the pianist Stefan Zlatanos including “Hungarian Suite”,  “Clair de Lune” and “Jealous”. Later he came back for a session with Ung Symfoni (youth symphony orchestra). My highlight was hearing him play Viva la Vida with a full orchestra. For the finale the very cute and young little musicians joined in for “Roll with the wind” and “Fairytale”.

Wish I had brought a camera instead of an old phone, here are some clips from the concert.                                                                                     Hilde M

Alexander Rybak has mastered the PlayStation of metallurgists.

Alexander Rybak has mastered the PlayStation of white metallurgists and found where the iPad is sharpened. Recently the winner of “Eurovision” visited the educational centre of CTRP (Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant), where he had a tour and even got to sit at a student desk. However the musician and singer still doesn’t wish to learn the profession of metallurgist while noting: “But I’m glad they (metallurgists) exist.” And the educational centre, Alexander Rybak compared it to “Jurassic Park”, “I see that many doors are closed to us, it is exactly like in Jurassic Park. If suddenly the electricity stops working here, then suddenly all the doors will open and all the students will run to us. “

Alexander appeared to be down-to-earth and fun to chat with – the guest star acquainted with the students with ease, generously giving out hugs, autographs and made pictures with those who were willing. However, the idol asked tough questions – such as whether the students wash their white metallurgists uniform themselves.

 A Fairytale concert

04KULAlexRybakk

Fireworks: Alexander Rybak was like a firework on the stage when he performed his two major hits “Roll With The Wind” and “Fairytale”. It was obvious that this was what the crowd had been waiting for. The people  sang along in full voices and gave the artist A standing ovation. Although he was skilled with both Swedish folk songs and classical violin play, it looked like he enjoyed himself most when he performed these songs.

I couldn’t have started the tour for this concept at a better place, said Alexander Rybak after a well done concert Saturday night.

The young man who won Eurovision 5 years ago showed up with the big smile we remember him with.

This comes really late but here is my report of the concert in Göteborg. We arrived to Gothemburg about 1 hour late. Never count on SJ to be on time… I decided it was no idea to go to the hotel and instead I hurried to the info to get a map over the town, It was my time in Gothemburg not spent at the station. The girl at the info heard I was from Stockholm and asked what I was doing in Gothemburg. I told her about the concert, she had no clue who Alexander was, but told me to enjoy it. I got to the place I thought was the concert hall but wondered if I was right.
