Francois de Fossa (01/01/1775 - 01/01/1849)

François de Fossa, born in Perpignan in 1775, fought as a soldier in Spain against the French invaders and subsequently served in Mexico. He later saw service in France. His work as a composer, generally neglected until recently, includes instrumental music that shows a clear understanding of the possibilities of the guitar.

Guitar Music

De Fossa's three Trios concertants for guitar, violin and cello, show something of the influence of Boccherini, a resident of Madrid for 37 years, until his death in 1805. This is heard particularly in the handling of the cello in the Trios, while his own knowledge of the guitar is clear from his writing for the instrument. He also wrote a set of quartets with guitar.
