The popular violinist has a special relationship with Indre Østfold.
– I have only had one concert before the “10 years of fairytales” concert at Askim culture house this Thursday. One of the reasons I come to Indre Østfold so early on the tour is that I feel confident about the audience. Both during the Soot-Play and seminars, I always get an incredibly good response. The people here are very calm, which is no wonder since they live in such beautiful surroundings. It’s a completely different pace here than in Oslo. The audience is more focused and alert, which I, as a classical musician, greatly appreciate. It seems that they are extra receptive when I fire up an energy-rich song on stage, says Alexander Rybak.

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.
