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.

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.

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.

On Sunday it was Hanne Krogh and her three tenors that was in action, yesterday we heard the more traditional “Silent Night, Holy Night,” that this year had grown from a quartet to a quintet.
