Alexander Rybak - fiolin

Alexander Rybak
Alexander Rybak was born on May 13th 1986 in Minsk, the capital of Belarus. At the age of five, Alexander and his little family of three moved to Norway and settled at Nesodden near Oslo. Alexanders parents are both professional musicians and they taught their son to play the violin and piano from an early age. Soon, he had to choose between his two instruments and he decided to go with the violin. He still plays the piano - as a hobby - along with the guitar.

Alexander practiced with fierce discipline for many hours every day and played concerts with his family and their musician friends. At a very young age he debuted on the stage and many noticed Alexander's talents. He enrolled at The Barrat Due Institute of Music when he was 10.

Alexander studied the great classical masters, but was from the beginning also preoccupied with thinking "outside the box". He began playing jazz and popular standards as well as pop hits. He composed music from an early age. His violin took him to far away places including Russia, The United States and China as a member of various orchestras.
