A long awaited jazz concert with Alexander Rybak and Felix Peikli.
A short report from the concert by someone who was present. Playlist and videos from the concert you’ll find below 🙂
Ever since I saw videos from the jazz concert these two brilliant musicians had in 2010, I have waited for a chance to see them live together. And suddenly the festival @Karpedammenscene, supported by Aftenposten, announced the concert, which due to the time of the day they called Jazz Brunch 🙂 And this time I couldn’t let the chance pass by, even if I had to drive for 18 hours in 1,5 day. And it was definitely worth it 🙂
Alexander Rybak performed at the popular Midsummer Festival “Seto Jaanituli” in Estonia.
In addition to perform his most popular songs, he also gave a short interview to Tallinna TV Suvestuudio. The parts from his concert and the interview that were broadcast on Suvestuudio’s daily summer programme 13.07.2017, you’ll find it in the video below.

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.

The audience was especially pleased how the sound of the violin was mixed with the elements of rock and roll. The whole performance was accompanied by a dance group and the pianist Mikhail Orgesh.

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→
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. “
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 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. “
Videos from Alexander Rybak’s concert at the City Day of Pervouralsk at Pobedy Square in Pervouralsk, Russia, the 19th of July 2014.
Thanks to Sonya Luzina and Persk.org for uploading videos from the concert on YouTube. The videos are posted in the playlist order, and only “Roll with The Wind”, performed before the “Eurovision Medley”, is missing. Sonya Luzina also made a playlist, so you can watch them all in a row.

A Fairytale concert
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.
