Why does Christopher Hogwood keep claiming credit for a discovery that is not his?main
The Brahms Albumblatt that caused so much media fuss the other week was no world premiere. The piece had, in fact, known about for a couple of years and received its first known performance in Germany in 2011.
But the conductor Christopher Hogwood, who started the fuss, is continuing to assert ownership of the story. Scholars are unhappy. He ought to back off.
