Bård Henrik Bosrup studied in Stockholm, Oslo and Los Angeles with Frans Helmerson, Aage Kvalbein and Lynn Harrel. He has been 1.Principal cellist in Magdeburg Philharmonic Orchestra for 10 years, then he switched to
Robert Schumann Philharmonic Chemnitz as solocellist, and after a while, then
decided to go back to his homecountry Norway.

Bård got his debut concert with the Norwegian Broadcast Orchestra with the
Dvorak concerto. As a solist he was engaged from many German orchestras. He is frequently engaged as guest principal cellist in Germany, Denmark and Norway.

Productions for school children called Bård&Bach has been played about 200 times the last 2-3 years and gives children a hardcore meeting with the cello suites, played acoustically and on electric cello. In the past years he played all Bach, Reger and Britten
suites in a concert serie in Oslo. He played a number of concert with Carillon, a spectacular sound meeting from bells and warm strings.

A meeting with the conductor Terje Boye-Hansen, who warmly spoke from the unknown Norwegian music, and recomended him to take a closer look in the National Library , resulted in this CD produktion. Another result of this connection is the Orchestra Oslofjord Kammerfilharmoni. Bård managed this orchestra and Terje is artistic leader, they has a purpose to find the forgotten norwegian music inheritance and get it known.
