6. December – Virtuoso Variations – Alexander Rybak

Virtuoso variations played by Alexander Rybak 

“In expressing authenticity, Alexander Rybak was an important partner. He is a classically trained violinist of high calibre. This he demonstrated by his performance of his own composition, “Julevariasjoner” (Christmas variations) built over the song “Vi tenner våre lykter” (We light our lanterns), from the TV series “Jul I Skomakergata” (Christmas in Shoemaker street). Here he shows his virtuosity to the fullest. With a wide use of double grips, and other technical finesses, he carries the simple melody into several classical stylistic expressions.”
