New Yorker revists the Joyce Hatto scandal

For those of you who were following the Joyce Hatto scandal earlier this year, in which it emerged that an extraordinary catalogue of critically acclaimed recordings turned out to be rip-offs from other, often quite well-known, recordings, there's an interesting piece in the current New Yorker by Mark Singer. Singer, who followed the story as it tore through the delicate heart of the classical music world, decided to pursue the matter further and obtained an interview with Hatto's husband, producer, and general hoax mastermind, William Barrington-Coupe.
