Continuing the current run of First Cut, Susannah Price's film tells the story of one of the biggest swindles in the history of the music industry. In 2003, Joyce Hatto became one of the most famous pianists in the world, thanks to a fraud hatched by her husband William Barrington-Coupe. It took years before the fraud was exposed, revealing how the music world had been hoodwinked with breath-taking audacity . Featuring revealing interviews with some of the leading lights of the classical music world taken in by the scam, The Great Piano Scam unpicks Barrington-Coupe's astonishing master plan, detailing how the industry and music lovers alike were conned into believing that a woman in her 70s had managed to record over 100 phenomenal CDs. Susannah Price's film also includes a poignant and surprising interview with the man at the centre of the fraud about his involvement, asking the key question: why did they do it?
