Composer Jason Carr studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. After winning the 1988 Vivian Ellis Prize, Jason was invited by Sir Peter Hall to compose the musical Born Again which starred Mandy Patinkin and José Ferrer. Jason has composed incidental music for over 50 plays at the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company in the West End and on Broadway.
His Prelude in the Manner of Gershwin was originally written for piano and later orchestrated by the composer. It is unmistakably Gershwin in its style and vigour and adapts comfortably for brass quintet.
