Three Preludes


George Gershwin

Grade 5
Performance Time: 5'43"

Molenaar Edition


Originally composed for piano, Three Preludes is a good example of the influence jazz had on American classical music of the 20th century. Of the 24 preludes Gershwin had planned to compose, only these 3 remain. Together they form a beautiful whole. A sparkling first prelude is followed by a sultry second, and the piece closes with the up-tempo third.
Naoya Wada has certainly enriched the wind band repertoire with this lovely arrangement.
