Masterclass/Play-Along CD

THE ROYAL CITY SAXOPHONE QUARTET (RCSQ)
Ernie Kalwa
Bradley Moggach
Robert McWade
Larry Moser
The RCSQ was founded in 1991 in Guelph, Ontario Canada, nicknamed the “Royal City,” after the royal Hanoverian Guelph family. In response to a question we are often asked, “How many people are in your quartet?”, with one voice we answer, “just four!” But we can appreciate the question because our CDs often have more than four voices playing at a given time. This has come about because the Brown Brothers’ arrangements called for six parts. As a result, we sometimes have to double up and add inner parts to our recordings.
