Carlo Grante

The excellent Music & Arts label publishes both work by living performers and important historic reissues. I'm on their mailing list, and today I got email that includes blurbs for a couple of discs by Carlo Grante. I was amused to read this at the end of a description of one of the CDs:
And he has been in the news lately as one of the pianists whose work was appropriated by the late Joyce Hatto.
I'm glad for the attention now being paid to some excellent pianists who aren't exactly household names. It's one positive result of the Hatto sideshow.

(Oh, and grain of salt time: read what William Barrington-Coupe now has to say about Hatto.)

Glad to hear it! It shouldn't take a genius record exec to ride the wave of publicity (and large back catalogue of very positive reviews) and re-release all the original 'Hattos'.

How many of them do this though remains to be seen...

Someone suggested a big boxed set of "Joyce Hatto," a great idea if you could get the different labels to agree to it.
