HATTOgate
Musicweb has withdrawn Concert Artist recordings from sale following recent revelations that at least some of the recordings purporting to be by Joyce Hatto were actually pirated from other existing recordings. The evidence for this does seem incontrovertible.......
Masterpieces Or Fakes? The Joyce Hatto Scandal - Gramophone
Joyce Hatto - The Ultimate Recording Hoax - Part 1 - Pristine Recordings
Purely coincidental? Joyce Hatto and Chopin's Mazurkas AHRC Research Centre for the History and Analysis of Recorded Music
Hatto - the greatest pianist(s) that now everyone has heard of! by Len Mullenger

List of "Joyce Hatto" recordings reviewed on MusicWeb International

With the exception of the Bax recording made in 1965, the provenance of these recordings is now at least doubtful. In cases where scientific comparison with another recording has demonstrated the original source beyond any doubt this indicated. Many more matches have been suggested - see Pristine Classical Website for further information.
