Album Notes
Francois de Fossa (1775-1849) was a French composer, guitarist and soldier. Unknown to most of us today, though in his time he was called «the Haydn of the guitar». Norwegian classical guitarist Runar Kjeldsberg's discovery of Fossas music has led to a major project, funded by the Norwegian state art fund, to record the complete solo pieces by de Fossa known today. This is the first of three compilation recordings and contains de Fossas four fantasias. Two of those, are world premiere recordings.
The recordings are made on an original Rene Lacôte guitar from 1820, owned by Prof Erik Stenstadvold.

Guitarist extra-ordinaire, Runar Kjeldsberg has a talent and a vision about his music that is truly inspiring.
Runar is a very interesting musician. Always sharing his warm and energetic personality through his music. He is one with his guitar, in fact he rarely ever separate from his guitar.

Runar Kjeldsberg studyied under some of the greatest guitar professors in Europe. Amongst them; Gerard Abiton, Alexis Muzurakis and most recently, earning his Master degree under the attentive ear of Carlo Marchione, in one of the most prestigious guitar classes in Europe.
In addition to his solo career Runar has been associated with projects such as "Transiteateret" (Norway) and "Muziek jong voor Oud" (The Netherlands). He has Toured Europe, Australia and the USA with flautist Charlotte Udø Kjeldsberg with their ensemble "Duo Saxe". Playing at venues as varied as "The cultural walking stick" in Norway, to the Niksic international Guitar festival in Montenegro.
