Gershwin Preludes for large brass ensemble cover
  • Three Preludes

    SKU: BBBE230112

    Expertly arranged for large brass ensemble by Michael Allen, these preludes were composed by George Gershwin for solo piano in 1926 and premiered by him at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City in the same year. Originally intended to be included in a set of 24 preludes (in the manner of Bach, Debussy, and others), these short preludes are a perfect second half opener.
