Karol Szreter (1898 - 1933)

A book published during Karol Szreter’s lifetime gives his date of birth as 1898, but two obituaries state that 1899 was the year in which he was born. He received his first piano lessons at the age of seven with a teacher by the name of Wachtel, made his debut in Warsaw at the age of eleven and studied at the St Petersburg Conservatory with Professor Dubassoff. From the age of sixteen Szreter continued his studies in Berlin with Egon Petri (one source cites Busoni as a teacher of Szreter). After his debut in Berlin at the age of seventeen, Szreter had a career for the next ten years playing throughout Europe in the major cities of Germany, Holland, Scandinavia, Italy, Poland, Romania and Czechoslovakia. In the late 1920s he appeared in Paris and made his London debut in 1930 at the age of thirty-two. He returned to London a number of times during the early 1930s but in 1933, whilst in Berlin, died after an unsuccessful operation; he had been suffering from leukaemia.
