There’s going to be a sold out house at Rådhusteatret on Sunday afternoon, and a 100 young musicians will have a memory for life. At 4 pm things will go off with a bang for the members of Nordby, Ski and Drøbak/Frogn school marching bands. This is the fifth year we will have a celebrity concert. It started with our 50 year anniversary in 2009. Back then Rein Alexander joined us. We felt it worked out so well that we wanted to have more people join us. Ski and Drøbak/Frogn joined us after.


- We’ve had visits from Ravi, Tommy Steine and Marian Aas Hansen last year, says Bård A. Granerud, head ofthe Nordby school marching band. They had a big rehearsal at Nordby School on Monday night. – We had the first rehearsal in Drøbak right after school began. Then the school marching bands have practised separately until now. Alexander arrives on Friday and joins us both on Saturday and Sunday. He is very much looking forward to it,- says Granerud.



Looking forward to it.

Rybak sees a talent from afar
Sensational in every sense, the TV project of the STV channel “Singing cities” is getting ready to interest and firmly glue many viewers to the screen in its second season. Straight away the show brought the statue in the entertainment category of contest ” Tele-top-2013″ to its creators. And what a noise the participants have made! I mean, they sang a lot of songs, and the quantity of the the songs were even more during the qualifying stages. And this year we can do nothing without casting too. Before the show will go to the second round , you need to find the most talented contestants. Last week, the selection finally took place in Minsk , and correspondents of ” SB” did not miss a chance to look into the Youth Estrade Theatre.

It was there where the long-awaited casting for the capital’s residents having musical abilities took place . It was curious not at least because it was Alexander Rybak who became a mentor for the contestants and even personally chose them. Probably every amateur fisherman without...

[i]Somewhere above the ocean
Far from the place we know
There is a tiny castle
All made out of snow

Nobody's ever been there
No one of whom I know
But there is a tiny castle
All made out of snow

(da, da da da da da da)
(da, da da da da da da)

Once in a while, at midnight
Something strange begins
Out comes a little snowman
Playing violin

Playing for all whose crying
Trying to heal their hearts
Once they're tired of living
Violin music starts

(da, da da da da da da)
(da, da da da da da da)

Nobody cares about him
Nobody ever will
He is a little snowman
A lonely one, and still

He's playing for all the sad ones
Trying to ease their weight

Once in a while, at midnight
The snowman starts to play

(da, da da da da da da)
(da, da da da da da da)

Somewhere above the ocean

Years ago, when I was younger
I kinda liked a girl I knew
She was mine, and we were sweethearts
That was then
But "then", it's true


I'm in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I'm already cursed


Every day, we started fighting
Every night, we fell in love
No one else
Could make me sadder
But no one else
Could lift me high above

I don't know what I was doin'
When suddenly
We fell apart

Nowadays, I cannot find her
But when I do
We'll get a brand new start


I'm in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I'm already cursed


She's a fairytale, yeah!
Even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I'm already cursed!

[i]Suddenly, I'm famous
And people know my name
I've got a thousand girls just waiting
And therefore it's a shame

That my heart has been captured
By your funny little smile
And finally I'm happy
If only for a while

People call me stupid
For treating you like a queen
But I don't even worry
'Cause you're my unforeseen

And I hope that you'll be with me
If only in my dreams
But here you are, next to me
And you're glad
Or so it seems


And I don't know for sure
Where this is going
Still, I hope for more
And more

'Cause who would know that you
Would treat me like a boy
And I'd treat you like a girl
In this funny little world


Don't promise me forever
Just love me day-by-day
No one knows the future
We're young, but that's okay

'Cause you'll always be a part of me

[i]I won't blame the hurting on you
You left in the sweetest way
I won't say that it's you
Makin' me feel this way

It's the heart and the soul and the body and the brain
Driving me insane
But the wind and the land and the fire and the rain
All will stay the same


I, I, I
Wanna roll with the wind bringing distance to everything
I, I, I
Whoa-oh

I, I, I
Wanna sit by the fire and glance at the pouring rain
I, I, I
I, I, I


I won't claim it's all 'cause of you
I guess that I played a part
It's just that I never knew
I'd fall for you from the start

There's a hole in the heart and a picture in the frame
Driving me insane
But the wind and the land and the fire and the rain
All will stay the same


I, I, I
Wanna roll with the wind bringing distance to everything
I, I, I
Whoa-oh

[i]It started with a call I stupidly answered
You said you got my number from one of the dancers
You waited right outside
You had something on mind
But then I saw your eyes
Your crazy eyes

Now you got me into something very sick and twisted
An evil kind of game I didn't know existed
You traveled overseas
To terrorize me
But I don't understand
Why can't you let me be?


Believe me when I say, you stupid fool
You're scaring me to death, that's not cool
Why won't you leave me alone?
Just leave me alone
You're crazy, leave me alone

I beg of you to stop and think this through
It's time to start up playing with someone new
Why won't you leave me alone?
Just leave me alone
You're crazy, leave me alone


You're scaring mom and dad, scaring off my girlfriend
You're waiting by my door early in the mornin'
I've told you many times

[i]Singing oah, I love you, Moa
You're way too young for me
But I don't mind


Never mind what your girlfriends say
Deep inside, I'm quite okay
I may have fooled around once or twice
But I really need you

And it's not like I'm the only guy
Oh, I know how you make them cry
So let's start by being friends
And let this friendship never end

I knew you years ago
What I was, I don't know
But let's just take it slow

Singing oah, I love you, Moa
You're way too young for me
But I don't mind
Don't say maybe, just be my lady
No need to hesitate
'Cause you'll be fine, yeah!


So tell me what I want to hear
No, wait, let's just leave it there
You know I'm not good for you
God, I don't know what to do

I liked you from the start
You melt my icy heart
And now it's burning hot


Singing oah, I love you, Moa

“Alexander Rybak considers Montvydas as one of the favorites and wants to shake his hand”
The winner of “Eurovision” in 2009 Alexander Rybak who will come to perform at the final show of the “Voice of Lithuania” during Easter, said in an exclusive interview to DELFI that he is very interested in the contestants of this year and their songs. He mentioned the representative of Lithuania Donatas Montvydas as one of the favorites.

“I saw the performance of your representative, and as a person he is very similar to the guys from Back Street Boys. But seriously Donatas Montvydas sings very purely in tune, and I’m really looking forward to his performance on the “Eurovision” stage. I also like that he sings alone, without dancers. Watching such a performance you hear the music instead of seeing some men showing off behind the performers. However during my performance there were dancers too, but it was just decided like that, I would be happy to sing without them as well. I hope to meet D. Montvydas on “Eurovision”, but not because he needs my advice, but just to shake the hand of this great guy for everything he does, “- said Alexander Rybak...

Hedda Berglien (7) has seen Rybak on TV, and finds it very cool to get to play with him. She has played some concerts before, but thinks it is a little spooky to perform for such a large audience. Cameren thinks the same: “I am really scared” –...

IN THE THROAT OF ALEXANDER RYBAK

Cool celebrities should pick on the ones further down the hierarchy. Therefore we let Morten Ramm from “Torsdagskveld fra Nydalen» nag on the fiddle-Jack Alexander Rybak.

How many girls have you actually “said hi to”?
- It is not few enough that I can keep the count, and there are not many enough that it might be fun to keep counting.

You’ve done all that an artist should not do in the media. Why?
- I was overwhelmed by the fact that people liked me, but eventually it was more important to be understood than to be popular.

But people still not understand you yet?
- There are a few who understand me, and we meet at TGI Friday’s every week.

What was the quarrel between you and Didrik Solli-Tangen about?
- We were two young promising guys who both were busy with our work. Media wanted to put us together in all possible settings. We did not need the media to do that for us, because we had managed to do it ourselves if we had wanted and had time for it.

The fiddler is ready for a makeover with Jan Thomas, but points out clearly, that there is one area, the stylist is absolutely not allowed to do anything about:

- “Stay away from the eyebrows!”

"Irresistable genre cocktail"

Arbout 70 children and young people got to work with Alexander Rybak and ended with a bang.

Since Friday, children and young people from Helgeland, Sweden and Russia worked intensively to put together songs for a final concert on Sunday evening.
Promoter Prima Music School and Violetta Sørensen has worked continuously for 2 months to put it all together.
There have been some tough months until now. It’s a challenge to guide so many children and young people up to such an event. I want to thank parents and Helgeland Sparebank for all the help, Sørensen says.
She is impressed with the will to work of both the children and of Alexander Rybak, who was hired as leader of the seminar.

- It is a pleasure to see that the childlren have had so much fun the last few days. They have endured the long days. Rybak has also been patient and taken his time for everyone. It has been entirely positive, and it’s so fun to hear kids say that they do not want to go home after the concert,- she laughs.

"More fun to be a musician than celebrity"

It is not a project, but a dream come true when Alexander will be leading 70 musicians up to the concert in the weekend.

-This is exactly what I have dreamed about. To get travel around and inspire young talent, says Alexander Rybak and let your fingers glide over the piano at Prima Music School.

'Custom youth'

Yesterday he started with 70 young, local musicians, rehearsals leading up to tomorrow's concert in Congress Hall.

-It is not long since I was in Malaysia and played for the important people and politicians. It's fun, but this is better. You come to a deeper human level, says Rybak.

He has arranged the songs specifically to fit a Norwegian youth level.

-The young people have a sense of achievement, while the public also will have an experience. It's very exciting to be with the young people to see them take these challenges in stride. It is much better interaction than if I were to held a concert here all alone, according to Alexander Rybak.

DOKKA: The Tomle-Svendsby sisters and the more than 100 dancers made a big show at the cinema, with Alexander Rybak as a guest artist.

You just have to take off your head gear and bow to the dust over the commitment, the glow, the dance happiness and the scene radiance that was shown during the dance show ‘Fairytales – still dreaming’ . The show has had four packed performances at the Dokka cinema during the weekend, with 1500 enthusiastic spectators. This was just awesome. You have to go far to find something as good as this! The response from the audience after the show was unambiguous. An ecstatic audience got on their feet and gave the more than 100 girls and boys at the stage standing ovations. And the judgment was clear: Dokka and Nordre Land have a fantastically good dance milieu. Basta!


"Rybak guest artist"

Alexander Rybak was guest artist in the show, and even if he had a rather humble role, the audience was on to the last clap when the entertainer was in the front, and Rybak himself was very satisfied after the show.

For the first time in two years the winner of ESC performed a classical concert.
“This is the first time I do a classical concert since I won the ESC, and I thank you for the support”, Rybak said after the concert. There wasn’t a single tune from Fairytale or a single halling throw in the church last night. Instead there were classical pieces by Vivali, Händel and Tchaikovsky on the set list to the popular violinist. Rybak played from Händel’s Organ concert in F-dur, from Tchaikovsky’s Serenda and from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons*.


Sven Nyhus
And a small Norwegian element, which Rybak had arranged for orchestra the play, “Bergrosa”. “It was great to add Nyhus to the concert. It was very nice”, Ragnhild Steen said, who visited the concert together with her grandchild. She liked what Rybak and his collaborating orchestra did, consisting of musicians from Tromsø and St. Petersburg with the concert master Anna Chizhik. “It was a great program with a variety of music, and he does have temper, that young man”, she says.

'Nebaschil Europy'



Supakoj mjane na nebe dushy,
U sjertsy ljubou ty zapіshy,
Vyvuchaju ja tsjabe da drabnіts,
Maru z taboj razam sasnіts’

Gory, rjekі, gaі, lugі,
Tut moj dom, tut beragі.

Nebashіl Europy, znou malady,
Z vysі gljadzіts’ na garady,
Da dushy tvajoj taemnaj svjatlo
Shljaham nachnym znou pryvjalo.

Pramіnajuts’ karagodam zjamlі
Nashyh vachjej dva karablі,
Dakranіsja da pavetranyh kryl,
My paplyvem za nebashіl.

Sontsa, zory, ljasy, Susvet
My gljadzіm z vyshynі planet

Nebashіl Europy, znou malady,
Z vysі gljadzіts’ na garady,
Da dushy tvajoj taemnaj svjatlo
Shljaham nachnym znou pryvjalo.

"An important vision to continue!"

The artist Alexander Rybak thinks it’s important, to honor Ketil Moe’s memory and vision. That’s why he performed on Saturday (it was Sunday actually ) in “Dyreparken” at the Ketil Moe run race.The Grand Prix winner gave a concert and sang for nearly an hour before the race started. At the finish line he presented the medals, signed autographs and posed for pictures to the joy for both able-bodied and disabled.

Rybak lived in Lillesand until he was 11 years old (not correct. His family spent their summer holiday in the area), and new Ketil Moe. And he thinks it’s important to be present to continue Moes visions:

“There are many diseases and conditions. I caught a glimpse of cystic fibrosis through Ketil Moe. I knew him when he lived, and I was tremendously inspired by his charisma. Even at his lowest points, he was a joy- spreader. Therefore it is appropriate to arrange a race like this in his spirit, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to be here.”

"Concert for submarine cable"

No less than two international Grand Prix winners was present when 700 paying spectators gathered in Sykkylven – in the hope and faith for submarine cable instead of overhead lines.

'Action'

Alexander Rybak and Elisabeth Andreassen were the most famous names, and was not surprisingly given the longest time on stage.

It went by seniority, with 5 minutes for the least well known. Both Rybak and Andreassen delivered the goods as normal, primarily with familiar tunes.

Both were having the children in active participation. Not least, a memorable experience for the three local children’s choirs, “Kor kjekt,”, ”Sykkylven Barnekor” and “Ikornes Gospel Choir”. Rybak even had the RG-girls from Sykkylven IL to shed the splendor of one of his songs.

'Huge range'

And it was a special concert. In addition to the musical, a lot of the artist told why they participated, and as Robert Post said: I love the nature we have here in Sunnmøre, and we should take care of it. Twelve different musical groups participated, and with a touch of appeal and the mayor talk,...
