Christmas mood a la Larsen

Early Friday night the Christmas concert “Stille Natt Hellige Natt” was back at the Immanuel church in Halden. There, an unusually packed church waited for Rune Larsen & Co.
Some will say that Larsen is perfecting his team when he takes to the road with his Christmas ensemble, consisting of Tor Endresen, Elisabeth Bettan Andreassen, Marian Aas Hansen and Alexander Rybak. The last one of course still equipped with his well acclaimed violin.

An evening for emotions

Christmas has been called a magnifying glass. The joy gets bigger but so does the sorrow, said Rune Larsen when he created the Christmas mood for a sold out Trinity Church.

The church seats are seldom more packed with the exception of Christmas Eve. This is also true for the Trinity Church in Arendal last night. The audience filled up the gallery too and extra chairs had to be placed in the church. Continue reading Review of the Christmas concert with Alexander Rybak in Arendal, Norway.

Molde, Norway: Rune Larsen, Elisabeth Andreassen, Marian Aas Hansen, Tor Endresen and Alexander Rybak performed both together and individually a solid pre-Christmas program, packed with well-known and beloved Christmas carols and spiced up with more unknown material.

Christne Koth takes care of the humour, while Rybak, Bettan and Didrik take care of the rest. Oseberg promises the best summer show ever, and the Lattergal is hiding in the wings.

– Hotel Klubben already has the summer show menu prepared. We welcome back the BAD gang, meaning Bettan (Elisabeth Andreassen), Alexander Rybak and Didrik Solli-Tangen. And last but not least, we present a newly written musical performance for children. Alexander Rybak is the main character on the stage, and he is also involved in writing the screenplay and music. We are really looking forward to this. The kids love Alexander, and we think it is important to offer quality also in a children’s show,- the hotel manager says.

Selina (10) and Anea Bråten (8) did not want to go to the Christmas concert. But that was before they heard that Alexander Rybak was coming.

-It was kind of strange to see him in person, since I have only ever seen him on TV, says Selina, who together with her sister was very pleased when, after the Christmas concert ‘Silent Night Holy Night’ in Tune church, had their picture with Rybak.
-He is very clever, and the concert was good. I have liked him for a long time. I didn’t want to go to the Christmas concert actually, but then Mom told me that Rybak was coming, Selina smiles.
In spite of the happiness she thought it was a little embarrassing to meet the star violinist.
-But it wasn’t scary. He was very kind,  the 10 year old says.

Light a hope for Christmas

It’s unbelievable that you’d get goosebumps from hearing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” at a church and at the same time get in a Christmas mood. By hearing Tor Endresen’s interpretation of it during the Christmas concert in Grimstad it provided a great beginning of a beautiful and powerful experience.

“Silent Night, Holy Night” is probably Norway’s most famous travelling Christmas concert, and the mood was set already when Alexander Rybak started playing the violin during the performance of Glade Jul (Silent Night). For 25 years different artists have filled churches all over the country under the title “Silent Night, Holy Night” like last night at Grimstad church.
