In 1997, one year after he had been graduated from the famous music school CMCN, Stéphan Forté composed his first instrumental demo “Visions”, which is considered to be the starting point of the Adagio adventure. This demo, being very clearly Neoclassical-oriented, quickly helped Stephan’s name to be noticed among the guitaristic community and allowed him to sign his first endorsement deals with Godin (guitars) and Rocktron (effects).
In June 1998, he opened for Yngwie Malmsteen and was contacted by producer Chris Tsangarides (Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Gary Moore...) who wished to work with him. The same year he finally started a showcase tour for Rocktron and his new sponsor: Lag Guitars.
In 1999, Olivier Garnier, former artistic director at CNR Music (Angra, Symphony X...), asked Stephan to compose some new material with vocals. Stunned by the virtuosity of the guitar-keyboard interplay, Garnier sent Stéphan to Philadelphia, PA (USA) to record and eventually form a band with Ukrainian keyboard player Vitalij Kuprij, who was then recording for the well-known Shrapnel Records label (Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen...). The two musicians spent two weeks together working, but gradually became aware of their different views on music. Finally they decided to put an end to their collaboration after they had recorded a four tracks demo.
Stéphan came back to France to finish his compositions and then recruited Dirk Bruinenberg, Franck Hermanny, David Readman and Richard Andersson to record the first Adagio album with producer Dennis Ward. “Sanctus Ignis” was released on March 2001 and received great success in Japan and in France where it was voted album of the month in the “Club Dial”.
While he was giving a masterclass, Stephan met Kevin Codfert, a young keyboard player who wanted the guitarist to listen to his demo. Very impressed by the talent displayed, Stephan finally asked Kevin to be a permanent member of the the band.
