julekort calender2014 Stary Klion julekort calender2014

As we have seen before, Alexander never forgets his Slavic roots, as he shows us every time he visits a Russian-speaking country.

Как мы уже заметили ранее, Александр никогда не забывает свои славянские корни. Он демонстрирует нам это каждый раз, когда посещает русскоговорящие страны.
Como hemos visto antes, Alexander nunca olvida sus raíces eslavas, como nos muestra cada vez que visita un país de habla rusa.
Wie wir schon zuvor gesehen haben, vergißt Alexander nie seine slawischen Wurzeln. Er zeigt uns dies jedes Mal, wenn er ein russisch sprachiges Land besucht.

5 to 7 Favourite TV-performances by our favourite fiddler, Alexander Rybak

So over the weekend we asked the fans “Do you have any favourite TV-performances from our Fiddler?” And we got many replies, 25 different performances of other songs than Fairytale were suggested. We present a little selection here and will come back with another posting with the performances of Fairytale.

Here are the videos in chronological order with info about each occasion and comments from the fans:

May 23rd, 2009 – appearance at the show of Paul de Leeuw “Mooi! Weer De Leeuw” (Great! De Leeuw again), Almere (Netherlands)

 

Anna, Poland.  If I had to choose my favourite I think it would be the improvisation with Paul de Leeuw: I was sooooo impressed when I saw it for the first time long time ago and I still am 

Ellen, The Netherlands. His improvisation is so impressive, amazing. Every time again I get goose bumps watching and hearing it and I’m proud they performed it in my country

Laila, Norway. This is a true gem.

Marijke, The Netherlands. My favourite is ‘ ‘t is of De Wereld Vergaat’. The improvisation with Paul de Leeuw. It was one week after ESC that Alexander was in the Netherlands. He did not know the song but he just improvised in such a beautiful way. It was amazing!

Marit, Norway. My reason for this is that I was so impressed. I am not so convinced today that he had not heard the song before, but the performance is beautiful anyway. His innocence is still there.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

September 11th, 2009 – appearance as guest at TV-show “Go’kväll” (Good evening), Umeå (Sweden)

 

Ebba, Sweden. LOVE this one!!!

Mary-Ann, Sweden. His best performance ever of my favourite song Funny Little World in Swedish show Gokväll (2009). Actually it was this special moment that made me run to buy his CD… and the rest is history.

Sara Anja, Norway. The best version ever of FLW.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

October 23rd, 2009 – appearance at the anniversary concert of Alexandra Pakhmutova and the first performance of song “Stariy Klion”, Moscow (Russia).

 

Jorunn, Norway.  His performance of Stariy Klion is also wonderful.

Kirsten Marie, Norway. The most charming performance.

Marit, Norway. My first thought went to Stariy Klion . He performs in Russia at a songwriter’s birthday. She sits by the piano and he is not dressed at all for the occasion. Do you know what I mean? I think he sings beautiful and fills the stage. And looks handsome.

May Elisabeth, Norway. It’s one of my favourites, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

December 9th, 2010 – Guest performance at the anniversary-concert of  the composer Michael Tariverdiev, Grand Kremlin Palace, Moscow (Russia).

Erica, Lithuania. One of my favourites is Ya sprosil u yasenya, because it’s a very emotional performance.

Hilde, Norway. One of my favourites is this one.  I loved this song on the concert videos coming to YouTube from the first concerts in Ukraine, and so did the wife of the composer of the song. So he was invited to do this on the memorial show for the great Russian composer Michael Tariverdiev. Lovely and emotional performance of Alexander.

Susanne, Germany. Alexander’s wonderful and emotional performance made me love this song so much that I started to learn Russian.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

January 15th, 2011 – Guest appearance at Norwegian MGP semi-final together with “Keep of Kalessin”, Ørland (Norway).

 

Sara Anja, Norway. This blew me away.

 Anni, England. Alexander Rybak proves once again there are no boundaries when it comes to handling any genre. He totally rocked that stage.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

January 21st, 2012 – TV-appearance in the final of the Danish MGP as guest-performer and chairman of the Norwegian jury. Gigantium, Aalborg (Denmark).

 

Aneta , Poland. I like this one because of the melody of “Satellite”.

Marianne, Denmark.  It’s in my country and it was a great surprise to hear this first version of his medley.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 5th, 2012 – Musical performance in the TV-show “Påskekveld”, live-broadcasted on NRK1 from Geilo ( Norway).

Jorunn, Norway.  His performance of Dagdrøm from Påskekveld on NRK1. I have always loved this song, and I always enjoy hearing it live, too.

Larissa, Germany. I love this performance of Alexander on TV, because it took place when I had my 16th birthday and this song touched my soul very much.  It’s a wonderful piece of music which enchants me again and again every time I listen to it.

May Elisabeth, Norway. The very first public performance of this beautiful piece, and I was watching it live on NRK. He was playing outdoors in freezing temperatures. I have loved that piece from this moment.

Venche, Norway. Without doubt.

Stary Klion (Old maple) – Alexander Rybak

The song “Stary Klion” (Old Maple) performed by Alexander Rybak at the concert of Alexandra Nikolaevna Pakhmutova. Moscow, October 23, 2009.

 

Stary Klion

Lyrics: M. Matusovsky. Music: Alexandra N. Pakhmutova

Transliteration by Zhenya  Russian

Staryĭ klen, staryĭ klen,
Staryĭ klen stuchit v steklo,
Priglashaya nas s druzʹyami na progulku.
Otchego, otchego,
Otchego mne tak svetlo?
Ottogo, chto ty ideshʹ po peryeulku.
