‘The Music Room at Champs Hill, a private 160-seat concert hall in the West Sussex countryside, has become a venue of choice for recitals and chamber music, recordings and live broadcasts thanks to the vision and generosity of David and Mary Bowerman. Champs Hill Records, an independent label dedicated to recordings made at the hall, young artists and new or under-represented repertoire, was founded in 2010: “It's not about making money, it's about giving people the chance to hear some of the finest musicians in the world, and about providing a platform for some of the marvellous young performers who are on their way up. With Champs Hill Records we're also keen to present relatively little-known music that is unlikely to stand a chance with the big labels.".’
