A confessional letter from the widower of little-known British pianist Joyce Hatto would seem to confirm that multiple recordings credited to Hatto, who died last year at age 77, were plagiarized. Gramophone Online broke the news earlier this month that at least some of Hatto's more than 100 discs had borrowed from performances by other pianists.

LITTLE-KNOWN British pianist Joyce Hatto, who died last year at 77, may be the Milli Vanilli of the classical world. A favorite of a handful of connoisseurs, she was lauded at her death as "one of the greatest pianists Britain has ever produced."
