    From the description, I would have to assume Marc-André Hamelin.

    This whole story is really very amazing.

    I seem to have miseed this message. Thanks for your kind wishes !

    Yes we should hope this is exceptional. However it is the second time within a year that we have
    to expose fake recordings. I guess these things are bound to happen as there are always people looking for an easy clainm to fame. I'm sure it will not be the last time and we should always be critical when such a flood of world class recordings comes in for free.

    the whole story long, I couldn't forget a comment by techneut, speaking about the Polonaise-Fantasie: "Actually I was working on this same piece for recording a while ago, but sort of left it when Setrak submitted his recording." I think this is the saddest part of the story.
    ciao, Mr Duffy

    Ah no, I can always pick that up again. Though now we have Sandro's excellent recording and there is no need to fill that gap anymore.
    What annoys me most is the considerable work I spent on creating the page for the Petrouchka Mouvements. I was really quite pleased with that but now nobody gets to see it anymore.....
