“This is the first time I do a classical concert since I won the ESC, and I thank you for the support”, Rybak said after the concert. There wasn’t a single tune from Fairytale or a single halling throw in the church last night. Instead there were classical pieces by Vivaldi, Händel and Tchaikovsky on the set list to the popular violinist. Rybak played from Händel’s Organ concert in F-dur, from Tchaikovsky’s Serenda and from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons*.
And a small Norwegian element, which Rybak had arranged for orchestra, “Bergrosa”. “It was great to add Nyhus to the concert. It was very nice”, Ragnhild Steen said, who visited the concert together with her grandchild. She liked what Rybak and his collaborating orchestra the did, consisting of musicians from Tromsø and St. Petersburg with the concert master Anna Chizhik. “It was a great program with a variety of music, and he does have temper, that young man”, she says.
The concert was a prelude to Tromsø International Church Music Festival which starts this weekend. There will be a series of classical concerts and a lot more. This was the first highlight of many, pastor Kjell Y. Riise says to the newspaper Tromsø: “Among other things, the concerts and worship services with music by, among others, Mozart, Bach and a lot of female Baroque composers. Later this fall there will be concerts with hymn writer Elias Blix and composer Adolf Thomsen”, he says.
Listen to Alexander Rybak’s self composed classical piece for ballet, «Pas de Deux» (=steps of two), which he performed with Kathrine at the Opera Festival in Kristiansund, Norway, 19 Feb. 2011!
