ADAM CARSE (1878 - 1958)
Through pieces written for students, the name of the English composer and teacher Adam Carse was once very familiar to musical beginners. To others he has long been known as the author of two important books on the history of the orchestra and as an editor of early Classical symphonies. He was educated in Germany and at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he later served as a professor.

Many of Carse’s compositions were designed for students of varying degrees of competence. His earlier works include two symphonies.
