The Nations: music by Telemann, Rameau and others



NZ Barok is New Zealand's only baroque orchestra performing regularly on historic instruments, and includes many of New Zealand's leading baroque specialists.

NZ Barok works as a co-operative endeavor under the leadership of founders Graham McPhail and Helen Brinkman, joint musical directors Graham McPhail and Miranda Hutton, as well as the players themselves – supported by an advisory board. Players also contribute to the administrative running of the orchestra. With no conductor musical decisions are developed through discussion and the rehearsal process can be quite extended, as all members of the group are welcome to offer observations and make suggestions.

"An unusual mixture of major and minor baroque works played with care by a authentic-performance group new to the catalogue." Dave Billinge,
