Duo:Katrine Moholt and Alexander Rybak charmed everyone

Rybak brought along the young ones

It`s great fun being able to perform with such a capable violinist like Alexander Rybak, said Lars Narvestad (14) after having performed in front of more than 4300 people at the castle.

I had the opportunity to do something big when I was quite young, and if I have the chance to give that other young people I will, said Alexander Rybak.

He doesn’t hide the fact that he’s impressed with Lars and the other eight people who got to perform.

For me it`s very important to show what you stand for and I think it`s important that young, capable musicians get some attention, too. (more…)

Alexander Rybak has mastered the PlayStation of metallurgists.

Alexander Rybak has mastered the PlayStation of white metallurgists and found where the iPad is sharpened. Recently the winner of “Eurovision” visited the educational centre of CTRP (Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant), where he had a tour and even got to sit at a student desk. However the musician and singer still doesn’t wish to learn the profession of metallurgist while noting: “But I’m glad they (metallurgists) exist.” And the educational centre, Alexander Rybak compared it to “Jurassic Park”, “I see that many doors are closed to us, it is exactly like in Jurassic Park. If suddenly the electricity stops working here, then suddenly all the doors will open and all the students will run to us. “

Alexander appeared to be down-to-earth and fun to chat with – the guest star acquainted with the students with ease, generously giving out hugs, autographs and made pictures with those who were willing. However, the idol asked tough questions – such as whether the students wash their white metallurgists uniform themselves. (more…)

A Stranger

Moscow. The end of June. It is + 10 C on the street. Alexander Rybak came to the meeting in a thin T-shirt. “We had snow in Norway two weeks ago, so I am used to the cold”. He has also got used to the constant attention which falls on him after winning the Eurovision Song Contest. Since then five years have passed and Alexander has written a lot of songs and travelled to almost 70 countries. And now he is reaping the benefits of his success – Rybak is the composer of A soundtrack on the popular Hollywood cartoon “How to Train Dragon 2″, and can be proud of it!

Sasha, how did it happen that you entered into Hollywood so elegantly? Did the producers invite you?
Nobody invited me. I just wrote a song and realised that it is perfect for the animation. I’ve worked on the first and second parts of the animation for Norway (main hero Hiccup speaks with voice of Alexander). At my own expense I rented a studio, recorded the melody and sent it to the company “DreamWorks” although only 2.5 months remained prior to the international release of the animation. I knew that I had little chance, they may not even want to hear my song. Especially the Americans, it means nothing to them. And suddenly the answer is: “Of course, Alexander, we know who you are”. I was delighted, although they also wrote that everything was ready, and there was no need for the song, but they certainly will listen my melody. I decided not to wait for the outcome, I was just happy and considered it like a personal victory – the main thing I took a chance. However, after a week and a half they called me and said that the composition is very nice, and in spite of the late terms, they want to use the song. In the end I felt happy, and my song plays in the final credits of the animation. In some countries it is released on the soundtrack disc. The compositions of John Powell are gathered there, and my song is the last track. (more…)
