Adam Carse was an English composer known for his expertise in orchestral and instrumental history. He has over 350 antique wind instruments, which he donated to the Horniman Museum. Though Carse is best known for studying the history of instruments and orchestra, many materials he composed for young string players and pianists are still very much in demand and loved today. For some, he has been recognized for a long time as the author and the publisher of two significant books on orchestral history. He studied in Germany and was a lecturer at the Royal Academy of Music of London. Many of Carse's compositions have been designed for students of diverse abilities. Two symphonies were his earlier compositions. Adam Carse received his composition training in Hannover and at the Royal Academy of Music, where he eventually rose to the rank of Fellow and Professor. The Horniman received the set in 1947 as a tribute to Carse's son Peter, who was killed in World War II's final days. 'The Orchestra in the Eighteenth Century' and 'The Orchestra from Beethoven to Berlioz,' both written in 1940 and 1948, are two of his most well-known works.
