Previous Linn Award-Winners
Recent Gramophone Award ceremonies have seen many of Linn's artists singled out for their outstanding recordings.
In 2010 the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Sir Charles Mackerras was a Finalist in the Orchestral Album of the Year category for their album Mozart Symphonies 29, 31 (Paris), 32, 35 (Haffner) & 36 (Linz) whilst Phantasm was a Finalist in the Early Music Album of the Year category for their album, John Ward: Consort music for five and six viols.
2009 saw another two recordings highlighted: Henry Purcell: Ten Sonatas in Four Parts by Retrospect Trio was a Finalist in the Baroque Instrumental Album of the Year category and the Dunedin Consort's Acis and Galatea (Original Cannons Performing Version 1718) was a Finalist in the Baroque Vocal Album of the Year category.
James Gilchrist flew the flag for Linn at the 2008 Awards with a Finalist nod in the Solo Vocal Album of the Year category for this album with the Fitzwilliam Quartet and pianist Anna Tilbrook, On Wenlock Edge.
Linn's biggest triumph, prior to being named 'Label of the Year' came in 2007 when the mighty Dunedin Consort scooped the Baroque Vocal Album of the Year Award for their recording of Handel's Messiah (Dublin Version, 1742). This superb two-disc album was later released on 180g vinyl in a beautiful 3 LP boxed set.
Many thanks to all who contributed to these successes, we will be working hard to bring you more award-winning recordings in the future.
