Forza Saxophone Quartet was formed in 2012 by James Rawlinson and is based in Bournemouth, Dorset UK.
Forza specialise in early Jazz music, Rags from the beginning of the 20th Century and well known jazz standards from the 1920s & 30s. Although Forza specialize in jazz, the Quartet has a diverse and varied repertoire of Classical music and lighter music such as TV and film themes so a performance could include:
Pachelbel – Canon
Barber – Adagio For Strings
Irving Berlin – Puttin’ On The Ritz
Scott Joplin – The Entertainer
Gershwin – I Got Rhythm
Mancini – The Pink Panther
Van Morrison – Moondance
The sax quartet is a more contemporary alternative to the traditional string quartet and the music is diverse, interesting and expertly played. The dress code of the group can fit in to all occasions and includes the very formal but fun Tail Suits, Pinstripe Suits with Twin-tone Brogues (great for Gatsby evenings) and of course formal dinner suits.
Forza Saxophone Quartet is available for all manner occasions and events including weddings, receptions, parties, dinners, corporate events etc. They also work in education and play for workshops and music courses throughout the South of England and can put together a programme of music to suit all these occasions and more.
