Arvi ja viulu – Arvi the Violinist


Kun Arvi täytti 90 vuotta pari viikkoa sitten, hän innostui tarttumaan viuluunsa, joka oli vuosikymmenien aikana soinut monenkirjavilla keikoilla. Nyt Arvi yllätti juhlavieraansa soittamalla jenkan “Väliaikainen, johon kaikki saivat laulaen liittyä mukaan. Tuskin osuvampaa kappaletta olisi Arvi voinut valita!

Elo ihmisen huolineen ja murheineen,
se on vain väliaikainen.
Ilon hetki myös helkkyvine riemuineen,
se on vain väliaikainen.

When Arvi celebrated his 90th birthday couple of weeks ago, he was inspired to take his violin from the wall again. That violin has seen very diverse places during many decades. Now Arvi surprised all guests by playing “Väliaikainen” (“Temporary”, jenkka, a Finnish folk dance similar to schottische). What a great choice!

The life of a man with all its worries and sorrows,
it is only temporary.
The moment of joy with its jingling bliss too,
it is only temporary.
