Notes and Editorial Reviews
Having reached its ten year milestone, Linn's Super Audio Collection series remains as popular as ever. Comprising tracks from across the award-winning label's most recent releases Linn Super Audio Collection Volume 10 encompasses music from Phantasm, Joe Stilgoe, Dunedin Consort and Ensemble Marsyas. Making their Linn debut in the last year were young pianist Chiyan Wong with an impressive Liszt recital, Irish Baroque Orchestra, guitarist Sean Shibe and Theatre of the Ayre. Critics enthused about Bach's Christmas Oratorio by Dunedin Consort with The Guardian calling it ''one of the finest accounts now available'', whilst Phantasm's Dowland recording earned several five star reviews with Gramophone remarking that it ''has all the hallmarks of a classic recording.'' Oliver Knussen added to Linn's impressive roster of conductors with a dazzling account of Stravinsky's The Soldier's Tale; his performance sits alongside those by Robin Ticciati, Trevor Pinnock and Thomas Sondergard who returned to conduct Berlioz, Mozart and Sibelius respectively.
