Alexander Rybak , Bærum Young Strings and the Vivaldi-orchestra together at the Culturehouse.
” Let me show you, what we are doing at Barrat Due” – Alexander Rybak said and took off with “The bee” by Francois Schubert, at great pleasure from the audience. At Bærum Culturehouse, it was full house up to the galleries, when MGP-winner Rybak, the Vivaldiorchestra and Bærum Young Strings were together at stage.
Alexander playing with the Vivaldi Orchestra of his father, Igor, and Thomas Stanghelle, for the 200 years Jubilee of the University of Oslo (Universitetet i Oslo), the following pieces:

This is Alexander’s only known performance in Greece so far. In 2007, 2 years before winning the Eurovision, he played songs from «Axion Estin» with the Oslo-based Vivaldi Orchestra in Plomari, Lesbos. Here you can listen the only two songs whose recording has become available from this concert, and watch photos. You can see Alexander at the piano in two of the photos.

The Vivaldi orchestra has been founded and conducted by Alexander’s father, Igor Rybak. At the vocals we find the Greek-Norwegian mezzo soprano Marilena Zlatanou and the Arcadia Choir, also from Norway.
The two songs heard here are «Της αγάπης αίματα» (Blood of Love) and «Ένα το χελιδόνι» (Lone is the swallow). They both belong to the famous Oratory of Mikis Theodorakis «Axion Esti» («Ἄξιον Ἐστὶ» = “It is Truly Meet”, 1964), based on the homonym poem of the Nobel-laureate Odysseus Elytis (1960), inspired after the struggle of the Greek people against fascism from the beginning of WW-2 and onwards.

This was the a performance by youths. – The Vivaldi orchestra is conducted by Igor Rybak. His son Alexander has served his time in the orchestra. Now they were together again – at Rommen Scene.
Alexander expressed his happiness for so many to have found their way to the concert, to support the young people so they could develop. To laughter from the audience. Because this was impressing from start to finish.
