Comprising our favourite music from the year that saw Robin Ticciatis Haydn named in The Telegraphs Best Classical Albums of 2015 list and Liane Carroll triumph at the British Jazz Awards, this is the ninth volume in Linns bestselling collection series. This eclectic selection has been compiled with the love and attention to detail that you would expect from an award-winning label. Producer Philip Hobbs has carefully selected these fourteen tracks which demonstrate the extraordinary breadth of the Linn catalogue. The collection opens with Dunedin Consort performing Bach from the album Magnificat & Christmas Cantata, a recording that received a wealth of five star reviews and accolades. Stepping into the soloist spotlight are Classic FM favourite Katherine Bryan, Palladian Ensemble alumni Pamela Thorby and Ingrid Fliter, who gives a sparkling performance of Mendelssohns Piano Concerto. Vocal highlights include soprano Elizabeth Watts characterful Mozart - a BBC Music Magazine Recording of the Month - and a G&S classic from HMS Pinafore, wittily sung by Andrew Foster-Williams. Robin Ticciati and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra give fresh impetus to Haydns popular Clock Symphony, whilst Scottish Ensemble presents a brand new arrangement of Debussys String Quartet in G. The collection closes with a trio of songs from Linns transatlantic jazz roster: Barb Jungr and Laurence Hobgood breathe fresh lift into a modern standard, Liane Carrolls Seaside, named Best New CD at the British Jazz Awards, yields music with a seashore theme, whilst the swinging pairing of Claire Martin and Ray Gelato serve up some of the most sumptuous morsels in the Great American Songbook.
