Piano Follies

A couple of years ago, when Richard Dyer called Joyce Hatto "the greatest living pianist that almost no one has ever heard of," he was at least half right. But evidently there was something of a cult following for this obscure British pianist, who died last year at 77, and it mostly had to do with her massive discography of 100+ CDs.

Which — wait for it — were apparently not all by her, according to Gramophone. The choice detail is iTunes using the track timings to lead folks to the original discs.

OMG! Our very own forgeries! And whomever the forger was, too clumsy to understand that tracks stolen from other sources might encode identifying information.
