Linn Records is proud to support the York Early Music International Young Artists Competition. Since 2009 Linn has partnered with the competition to offer a recording contract to the winning ensemble, which has resulted in a critically acclaimed series. Linn’s Chief Producer and Chairman of the Judges, Philip Hobbs, has been thrilled to be able to work with the talented winners on a fascinating and diverse range of projects. 2017 winners BarrocoTout have just released their debut recording of music by their fellow Belgian Henri-Jacques de Croes. www.linnrecords.com
“The competition helped us to become one on stage, all in the most supportive and friendly atmosphere. St. Margaret's Church is a magical place.“
"The competition was a turning-point, bringing us wider recognition throughout Europe; and the recording with Linn Records [awarded the Diapason d’Or] marked a decisive step in the continuation of our career.”
“Spending an intensive week together, deepening our mastery of the repertoire with the precious help of Philip Hobbs, elevated us to a higher standard.”

"Winning the Competition generated new engagements at major Early Music Festivals, a BBC broadcast, and the opportunity to record our CD in exactly the way that we wished."
