Roger Vignoles sings??

Amazon told me 'Get "Shostakovich; Rachmaninov - Songs" by Roger Vignoles for £13.99'. Looking at the site, it describes Roger Vignoles as the 'artist', and one Iris Oja as the 'performer'. Oja's name is slightly larger on the disc than Vignoles'. At the bottom of the page there is a 'sponsored' link to Roger Vignoles' CDs. Seeing that, as far as I understand, he's primarily an accompanist, and a very fine one, a number of noses might justifiably be out of joint.

I suppose for those who don't know Roger Vignoles, it does not matter whether he sings, dances or plays the piano.....
