From Our Studios: Pianist Helene Wickett tackles Beethoven
Helene Wickett is tackling all the piano sonatas of Beethoven, and she's come to the second last one, Op. 110 in A flat. Helene thinks the piece may have been intended for Antoni Brentano, Beethoven's "Immortal Beloved" - He marked it "con amabilita", "with affection, warmth, softness". She played it live on Cathy Fuller's "Classics in the Morning".
