About Christian Forshaw

Saxophonist Christian Forshaw is one of Britain's top composer-performers. Forshaw worked with the hard-to-classify American composer Moondog and later, he played with progressive rock composer and producer Brian Eno. Forshaw graduated from the Guildhall School in 1995. In 2002, he was hired as a professor of saxophone by the school, and he remains in that position. Forshaw attracted the attention of recording companies with his debut album, Sanctuary, which mixed medieval music, contemporary compositions, and works by Forshaw himself. The 2010s and 2020s saw Forshaw contribute compositions to releases by the vocal groups Voces8 and Tenebrae and to films, including Ridley Scott's The Last Duel. In 2022, Forshaw was heard with Tenebrae on the album When Sleep Comes.
