School for Scandal

Posted at 3:31 PM on March 2, 2007 by Rex Levang

My fellow bloggers have been too noble to bring this one up, but I suppose this space should take some notice of Hattogate, the scandal that's been lighting up the classical blogosphere lately. (Basically, the piano recordings that everyone thought were by Joyce Hatto were not by her at all.)There's been a lot written about this one; this Gramophone article is a good place to start.

(But as Alex Ross suggests, Joyce Hatto has received much more attention as a result of this imbroglio than she ever did in her life and career.)
