  Christian Forshaw 
Christian Forshaw is a saxophonist and composer whose career to date reflects the qualities required of a musician in the 21st Century. Long gone are the days where a musician spends an entire career working within the same boundaries and increasingly musicians find their work transcending genre after genre.
Audiences have found a powerful connection with Forshaw's compositions and performances, and reactions to both Sanctuary and Renouncement have been profound from both the traditional classical establishment (BBC Radio 3 etc.) through to more commercial stations such as BBC Radio 2 and Classic FM. Live performances have left audiences spellbound and moved by the power and intimacy of the  music.
