Christian Forshaw is a British saxophone virtuoso and composer

Christian Forshaw comes from Yorkshire and graduated from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in 1995 with distinction He then began working with some of the world’s finest ensembles including the London Sinfonietta, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra He has toured extensively with smaller ensembles including the Michael Nyman Band, the ensembles Endymion, Icebreaker and the Composers Ensemble Since 2002 Forshaw has been Professor of Saxophone at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama

Forshaw is a member of Notes Inégales, directed by Peter Wiegold, and was featured as soloist with the group in 2005 playing Donatoni’s Hot He has also made solo appearances with the Scottish Ensemble, giving several critically acclaimed performances of Richard Rodney Bennett’s Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Strings, and with the London Sinfonietta in 2002 performing Pedro Rebello’s Aquas Liberas at the Queen Elizabeth Hall

Forshaw's debut album Sanctuary QTZ2009 combines saxophone, voices, church organ and percussion in arrangements of sacred melodies as well as original composition Sanctuary reached No1 in both the Amazoncouk Classical Chart and New Zealand’s Concert FM charts, and made the Classic FM "Hall of Fame" in 2005

In 2006 Forshaw turned down a four album deal with SonyBMG in favour of setting up his own label, IntegraRecordsUK This was to avoid having to consider market forces when creating further albums; something he felt would kill the creative process His second album, Renouncement, was released on Integra in April 2007 He was subsequently commissioned to write a piece in memory of victims of the London bombings of 2005
