Adam Carse (1878–1958)
Adam (von Ahn) Carse was born on 19th May 1878 in Newcastle upon Tyne. He was educated in Hanover and was a Macfarren scholar at the Royal Academy of Music, London where he studied composition with Frederick Corder. Whilst Carse is perhaps best known for his study of the history of instruments and the orchestra (in 1947 he donated his collection of 350 wind instruments to the Horniman Museum), the wealth of material he wrote for young string players and pianists is still in great demand and much-loved today.
