In 2010 Gramophone Named Linn Label of the Year
In October 2010 at the annual Gramophone Awards, Linn was named Label of the Year. For Linn, winning this prestigious award was the culmination of nearly three decades of work, and represents the dedication of a team striving to give the you the best music, with no compromises on quality or support of our artists.
To hear Gramophone's Editor-in-Chief James Jolly describing Linn as "...the very model of a modern record company" was, well, music to our ears.

Other Gramophone Award-Winners
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).
More recently 2014 saw Dunedin Consort triumph again as they won the Choral Album of the Year Award for their brilliant Mozart: Requiem, which Gramophone described as "one of the finest Mozart Requiems of recent years".
Gramophone Award Finalists
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: 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.
Many thanks to all who contributed to these successes, we will be working hard to bring you more award-winning recordings in the future.
