"Hatto plays Hatto" is actually a pretty funny idea.

Did you notice what the initials of the record label spell out?  By now everyone should realize that the picture is actually William Barrington-Coupe.  The review actually reads like a hybrid of the Shine story and the Hatto hoax. 

Very amusing.

No less than four articles about Joyce Hatto and "ghost conductor" René Köhler at Classicstoday...today.
Don't know if they will be very amused about the Köhler article at Tahra though...  Wink

JOYCE HATTO: THE AUTHORIZED RECORDINGS VOLUME 1, 1950/1956

What fun, the Hatto thread is back.

Here is an intriguing clip from the above link about "ghostings' whatever that is supposed to be:

"Since Hatto was young, able, and in need of work, she didn't mind playing "ghost pianist" to non-British counterparts like Edith Farnadi (Liszt's Sonata and complete Années de Pèlerinage), Egon Petri (Bach/Busoni), Kurt Appelbaum (the complete Beethoven Sonatas), Yuri Boukoff (Prokofiev's nine sonatas), Nadia Reisenberg (Chopin Nocturnes and Mazurkas), Jorg Demus (Bach's Goldberg Variations, Partitas, and Well-Tempered Clavier, plus works of Schumann), and Paul Badura-Skoda (the Chopin Etudes, Brahms' F minor Sonata, and various works by Schubert). Although List never told Hatto in advance for which pianist she'd be deputizing, once in a blue moon she'd find out and adjust her playing accordingly.

For example, one is hard pressed to determine which six of the 12 Scarlatti sonatas credited to Clara Haskil actually were Hatto's work. And vice-versa, for that matter. However, it's difficult to know if the Beethoven Sonatas' rough-hewn qualities result from similar "hindsight", or did Hatto radically change her style by the time she remade most of them for the series Concert Artist issued under Sergio Fiorentino's name?

The 20 discs encompassing DG Original Masters' "Authorized Hatto Volume 1" include most of the Westminster solo material mentioned above. The Boukoff, Reisenberg, and Demus Bach items will appear in Volume 2, along with Hatto's complete Westminster concerto "ghostings"
"

Now she's a real ghost, ha, ha.

JOYCE HATTO: THE AUTOGRAPH EDITION

This surely should become the quote of the month:

 "And let's not forget that even if the autographs turn out to be authentic, the actual performances are not."
