There was room for both humor, seriousness, anecdotes and song when Alexander Rybak held his final violin exam at Barratt Due Music institute today, for which he got the grade A.
When Alexander Rybak opened his exam-concert Thursday afternoon the concert hall of Barratt Due was “As full as we are allowed to fill it”, as the spokesperson of the house said in his introduction.
Typical that the things, you struggled with goes like a dream.
The concert opened with challenging and virtuoso music by Johann Sebastian Bach and Franz Schubert, before Rybak came with “lighter” music as ” Clair de Lune” by Claude Debussy. It was nevertheless here the difficulties began for the exam-candidate.
