Notes & Reviews:

Linn celebrates its 40th anniversary with a special double album bursting with stand-out music from across the decades. This limited edition CD features specially designed artwork with an audiophile twist! Re-discover what makes this independent label great and enjoy the artistry that made it famous. The award-winning label's reputation for quality together with an intrinsic passion for music making is what shines through this celebratory collection. James Jolly (Gramophone) contributes booklet notes charting Linn's path to its 40th anniversary year. There is best-selling classical music from Sir Charles Mackerras and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra's Classical BRIT and double BBC award-winning album Mozart Symphonies 38-41, plus the Gramophone award-winning album from Dunedin Consort, the revelatory 1742 Dublin version of Handel's Messiah. Claire Martin and Carol Kidd, both early signings to the Linn label, have amassed enviable discographies; Claire Martin has established herself as a tour de force on the UK jazz scene winning at the British Jazz Awards seven times! Representing Linn's commitment to home-grown Scottish talent are Maeve O'Boyle, Fiona Mackenzie and newcomer Amy Duncan, whose 2013 album Cycles of Life is a beautifully crafted album of quietly powerful songs. Names Linn fans will be happy to see back on the bill include Hue & Cry, Ray Gelato Giants, Martin Taylor and Jon Strong. The strength of Linn's classical catalogue is clear and resulted in the label being named Gramophone 'Label of the Year' in 2010. The Palladian Ensemble, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Magnificat have enjoyed long associations with Linn, making memorable recordings whilst newer signings such as Katherine Bryan, Kuniko and Richard Tunnicliffe continue the high standard. Extra content, including a video of Linn's chief producer Philip Hobbs reminiscing and sharing behind the scenes stories with 2013 BBC Jazz Award winner Claire Martin, will accompany this limited edition CD.
