Lara Hall / NZ Barok – conductor Peter Walls concerti by Benda, Pisendel, Torelli / ATOLL ACD 419

Debuting at Number 3 in the RNZ classical chart this new recording quoting Lara Hall “is the culmination of a long-held desire to record little-known 18th century concerti for global audiences…The differences between the works of Torelli, Pisendel and Benda show that, despite their close proximity, these three composers were strong, individual musical personalities, and highlight the speed of stylistic compositional change of the era.”

NZ Barok – THE NATIONS / ATOLL ACD 813 [74:17]

“In a programme with its title taken from a suite of dances by Telemann entitled Les Nations anciens et modernes, and including Rameau’s Suite from Les Indes Galantes, NZ Barok reveals itself to be a highly accomplished group of authentic string players. All the music on this disc brims with vitality, supreme accuracy and a full sound that would do justice to any of the vaunted authentic groups from Europe.” John Button, The Dominion

“For me, the way the group plays the music allows all the different characters to come through with the proper expression.” Email from NZ Barok supporter 10th Oct 2017

Upon release in November 2013 The Nations was in the RNZ classical chart for 10 weeks reaching Number 2 in January 2014.
