Breaking News at the Gramophone website: there is an ongoing examination of Joyce Hatto's recordings, and they have reached the conclusion that her recordings are not by her, but by many different pianists! Apparently her husband, who is supposed to have made the recordings, has been using recordings by artists as Yefim Bronfman, Carlo Grante and Simon Laszlo. Gramophone has gone on to say that Hatto has been a mysterious figure since no one had ever heard of her. These recordings were routinely reviewed an given very high marks at ClassicsToday and other classical music sites. I know that my curiousity was piqued when I read about the recordings and only the difficulty involved with obtaining them prevented me from dropping a pretty penny on them. David Hurwitz was one of her fans, so now I'm wondering what ClassicsToday will do with this story.
