Following our recent Label of the Year success, Linn combined with our Russian partner Linn Prestige to debut Claire Martin in Russia for an intimate, two-day event held in the exquisite surroundings of St Petersburg.

Attended by an invitation-only audience, Claire Martin and her band performed a warm, witty and often soulful set at the Hotel St Petersburg, which included an onstage interview, with Claire giving a behind-the-scenes insight into the artistic decisions and people that have influenced her music and career.

The following day, Claire appeared at the Linn Prestige boutique on St Petersburg's famous Nevsky Prospekt, where press and customers had an opportunity to discuss and compare her Studio Master recordings via a Linn Klimax DS System to what we'd heard the evening before.

Claire Martin said of the event: "I was amazed at the improvement over my CD recordings of the Studio Master recordings on the Linn DS System, how much closer to the original they sound." She continued: "I was immediately transported back to the performance, and able to visualise with complete clarity who had played on any given recording."
