Jessica "Mighty Terpsichore" Duchen reports that, according to the intrepid detectives at Gramophone magazine (aka the Barely Legal of classical music nerds -- and nerdettes like Opera Chic) the legend of obscure, oldskool female "pianistic talent" Joyce Hatto is not standing up to digital scrutiny & doublecheks: it all started because totally lofi iTunes (aka "DRM who? Moi? No qway Josay!") identified one of her records as "a recording on BIS by the Hungarian pianist Laszlo Simon", and further tests prove many more deceptions. ITS ALL LIES! L I E S!
Who was Joyce Hatto then? Lam3r than Windows 95? More spyware-infested than Windows 98? More b00tleg than Vista???
Opera Chic's theory: a poorer, not as snazzily dressed Milli Vanilli. But we sure liked the Space Age, ozone-layer-busting, Jetsons hairstyle!
And Jessica's updates keep coming!
Say it ain't so, Mr. Holmes!
