: IRENE SCHARRER

plays
Beethoven's Piano Sonata in A flat,
Op. 110
Beethoven's Sonata in A flat, Op. 110, was composed during the years 1820-21. According to Vincent d'Indy, this work and the String Quartet in A minor, Op. 132, which was written four years later, both express the tragic mental condition of the composer during the last period of his life.
The A flat Sonata is the only work of its kind of Beethoven's last period which bears no dedication. ' Only to himself ', says Vincent d'Indy, ' could Beethoven dedicate this musical expression of a convulsion in his own life.'
Irene Scharrer first studied at the Royal Academy of Music under Tobias Matthay and made her debut as a soloist at St. James's Hall in 1901. Like many other British artists, she came to the forefront during the last war, when she was continually to be heard in London and the provinces playing with all the leading orchestras.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome
