  1. beautiful music and a musician! His piece is very difficult and has a lot of toccata rhythm which need a focus and balance, I had to take this course when I was studying for my music!

    • I am glad, you liked the post. Thank you for explaining this music piece. Alexander Rybak has a lot of talent. Will be interesting to see, how he will grow and develop his music. Veraiconica

      • In 2010, several incidents of uncontrolled anger caused commentators to question whether Rybak has an anger control problem. During the trials for the ESC 2010 finals in Bærum, Rybak became so infuriated when a sound technician was not doing what he wanted that he smashed his own hand, breaking his fingers. Also, during trials for Swedish television in June 2010, he smashed his violin on the floor. His appearance was then canceled.

        • It appears, he has a lot of growing up to do yet. Hope he will be able to overcome his problems, as he is very talented. I had never heard of him before, but found this u-tube by total chance tonight, when looking for music, I wanted to enjoy. Veraiconica
