Alexander Rybak – Min Favorittmusikk – NRK Klassisk 11.12.14

The last “My Favourite Music” on NRK Classic with Alexander as host this year. The topic was “interaction and joy”, and he had invited his former principal at Barratt Due Music Institute, Stephan Barratt Due. Quite interesting to listen to the talk between the former student and his former principal.  Alexander must have been quite a student for sure. Enjoy almost two hours with good music and interesting talk. The video has English subs 🙂
