“In a programme inspired by Telemann’s suite of dances, Les Nations anciens et modernes, and featuring Rameau’s Suite from Les Indes Galantes, NZ Barok showcases itself as a remarkably accomplished ensemble of authentic string players. Every piece on this recording exudes vitality, impeccable precision, and a robust sound that rivals any esteemed authentic group in Europe,” praises John Button of The Dominion.

Reflecting on the release, a dedicated NZ Barok supporter expressed, “For me, the group’s interpretation allows all the different characters to come through with the proper expression,” in an email dated October 10th, 2017.

Upon its debut in November 2013, The Nations made an impressive impact, securing a spot on the RNZ classical chart for 10 consecutive weeks and achieving the position of Number 2 in January 2014.
