Greeting from Alexander to his fans around the world. May 14th 2010

Alexander is born may 13th 1986. On his 24th-birthday, may 2010, he made this video from his parents house at Nesodden and posted it on his facebook-wall. The video had some sound-problems, so this version is improved and uploaded by Yannis Papadopoulos. Russian subtitles by Zhanna Sergueeva. German subtitles by Sabine Fundel. Dutch subtitles by Marijke Arentsen. Romanian subtitles by Jenia Skripnik.

 

As a special birthday-present for Alexander had been made by his facebook-fans that year, there was also a special birthday-video produced, to congratulate Alexander on may 13th 2010.

A letter from South-Africa. Valdres Summersymphony Newsletter aug.19th 2010

If you don´t know,  Sityhilelo is 15-year-old boy from South-Africa, who got the chance, to travel to Norway and participate in Valdres Summersymphony, june 2010, because of a birthday-present to Alexander Rybak from his fans and friends.

A letter from South-Africa

We arrived safely on Wednesday the 6th and the trip back was great! I’m writing you this letter in remembrance of the great time I had in Norway, the people were warm, the food was great, the weather was wonderful and the 5 star service. I met new friends and I miss them already and we promised each other to meet again next year, hopefully! And my best friend Carl gave me a USB stick with all my favoured music in it and he also wrote a goodbye letter for me and got all the Woodwind players to sign it, that was very kind of him.

I learned a lot in the Valdres Sommersymfoni because the commitment those students have when we rehearsed in the orchestra and when they play their solo’s it’s inspiring and the standard of playing those children have is what we are not used to in South Africa, and I got an amazing masterclass from Frederick the clarinettist who was his idea to donate the clarinet to me.

I was so shocked I almost cried, it was so unexpected. I wish you guys a wonderful year and I hope to be back next year and thank you for the new clarinet it’s amazing. Thank you very much guys for the great times we shared together may this connection/relationship amongst us grow from strength to strength.

Best wishes to all

Yours Thankfully

Sityhilelo Gwenxanea

Happy Birthday, Alex!

The Perfect Birthday Present For The Fiddler – (translation to German)

Hallo liebe Freunde!

Wie ihr alle wisst, ist Alexanders Geburtstag schon sehr bald. Wir haben uns seit einiger Zeit Gedanken darüber gemacht, was wir ihm zum Geburtstag schenken könnten. Was kann man einem jungen Mann schenken, der – wie es scheint – schon alles hat?

Alexander hat einmal gesagt, dass der Grund, warum er Musik macht, der ist, dass er die Menschen zum Lächeln bringen möchte. Bei uns hat’s geklappt: Seit wir ihm dabei zuhören, wie er seine “Fairytales” mit  dem Wort, der Geige und Frikar erzählt, erfahren wir mehr Freude und Spaß (vielleicht sogar ein bisschen zu viel, könnten unsere Nachbarn meinen ;))

The Perfect Birthday Present to the Fiddler (translation to Slovak)

Milí priatelia!

Ako iste viete, Alexandrove narodeniny pomaly klopú na dvere. Už nejaký čas sme rozmýšľali, aký darček by sme mu mohli prichystať. Čo dať mladému chlapcovi, ktorý má hádam viac ako všetko?

Alexander raz povedal, že dôvodom prečo sa venuje hudbe je: pretože chcem vidieť ľudí usmievať sa. U nás sa mu to podarilo. Odkedy počúvame, ako nám prostredníctvom piesní, tónov svojich huslí a za sprievodu tanečníkov z Frikar rozpráva svoje „Rozprávky“, sme šťastnejší – až príliš, ako by sa mohlo zdať našim susedom 😉
