James's Hall in 1901, playing Mendelssohn's Rondo Capriccio and Chopin's Rondo in E flat. Like many other British artists Miss Scharrer came to the forefront during the War, when she was continually to be heard in London and the provinces playing with all the leading orchestras. Among a number of important foreign engagements Miss Scharrer has been heard at the Nikisch Concerts, at the Leipzig Gewandhaus, and with the Berlin Philharmonic Society.

@ A mosaic of words and music illustrating two versions of the countryside
Readers :
Rose Bruford
Hubert Gregg
It was a happy inspiration when the radio item known as a mosaic was invented some six years ago. It was something new, a presentation in brief, in which music was made more than a background to prose and poetry-it became a complement to it-each being chosen to suit the mood of the other, and each being the gainer thereby.
The mood of today's mosaic is that of the English countryside, both pastoral and rustic ; both Arcadia and the good earth ; both the towns-man's dream of the country and the farmer's actual life of hard work. Material will be drawn on the one hand from Elizabethan and eighteenth-century pastoral verse, and on the other from verse or prose by Wordsworth, George Bourne , D. H. Lawrence , Richard Jefferies , William Cobbett , and others.
