Concert Artist Recordings
||This article needs additional citations for verification. (January 2011)|
Concert Artist/Fidelio Recordings was a British classical music record label, situated in Royston, Hertfordshire, England, and owned and operated by William Barrington-Coupe. It is best known for selling unauthorized copies of commercial recordings by other artists as the work of Sergio Fiorentino and Barrington-Coupe's late wife, Joyce Hatto. Barrington-Coupe's long history in the music world includes time with Saga Films and Records and pop record producer Joe Meek.
After a great deal of speculation, discussion, and allegations in early 2007, on 26 February Barrington-Coupe admitted fraud and plagiarism regarding his recently-deceased wife's recent recordings.
