Just before Christmas I published a post about pianist Joyce Hatto which focused on the drama documentary broadcast on BBC 1, Loving Miss Hatto. You can read my post here.
The whole Joyce Hatto episode is such a sad one. For those who haven’t been following her story, Joyce was a concert pianist whose husband constructed many of her late recordings by using those of other pianists. This was supposedly done without Joyce’s knowledge however, this is now proving to be not the case as Joyce was probably aware of what was going on.
I thought it might be a good idea to listen to some ‘real’ Hatto recordings proving that she did in fact have some credibility and was a concert pianist who had a career before she became ill. So here are a few apparently genuine Joyce clips – enjoy!
