  • On An Overgrown Path: Joyce Hatto - the other story
    10 02 pm Gergio said What makes you think this person is for real Barrington Coupe invented an entire fictional biography for Joyce Hatto s conductor René Köhler Something like this without even a name attached to it is considerably easier to fake 9 10 pm Pliable said Gergio due to the intrusive actions of the media I didn t identify this pupil of Joyce Hatto s I am quite satisfied about their identity and will forward any serious correspondence to them Anonymity is sometimes useful which is why is why I guess your Blogger profile does not reveal your identity Sometimes some help and understanding is needed 9 35 pm Gergio said Pliable that s all very well but where such an intricate web of lies has been built up around a person as in this case I think many of us will feel that scepticism is justified See for example Christopher Howell at http members2 boardhost com MusicWebUK msg 1173953677 html Perhaps you would feel less forgiving if you had yourself been conned by Hatto and her fraudster husband 1 05 am Pliable said Sometimes some help and understanding is needed 6 27 am dsa said The style of this piece entirely resembles the style of the fraudulent biography of Rene Kohler on the crimnal Concert Artist website Why post it at all It is plainly a fake and easy to work out who faked it 1 20 am recordjackethistorian said It is entirely possible to have technique talent but not have the ability to perform in public under the intense scrutiny of the press and all the rest of the fluff that goes along with life as a public perofrmer Look at the number of so called great performers who retired from public performance Yeuhudi Menuhin comes to mind How many many performers refuse to be put into the crucible of the recording studio Martha Argerich and Sviatoslav Richter come to mind People who no long wish to or for some reason are not suited to being performers even though they have the understanding and musical talent often make good teachers This may well have been true of Joyce Hatto This account sounds authentic to me It sounds authentic enough to me that I wish other students of hers would come forward so we may understand this story completely Somehow I have the feeling that the complete story has not been told yet The discovery of these fakes was a great feather in the cap of some of the academics who made and confirmed this discovery Don t count that out as a motive for wanting the story to be larger than life Lets listen long enough to learn the truth sans all the egos involved I have favourite performers who when I mention their name people just look at me as if I was crazy they ve never heard of them One that immediately comes to mind is Imogene Cooper who s Schubert recordings are amongst
