NZ Barok

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.

Gavotte (Rondeau) from Partita No. 3 in E major BWV1006


As follow up to the 2013 acclaimed and chart-topping Beethoven album, Grammy® Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell continues as Music Director and Conductor of the world-renowned ensemble, Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

On their new collaboration, this time with Bell also as a soloist, he conducts ASMF from the leader’s chair in an all-Bach program.

Joshua Bell is the first American and first person to hold the title of Music Director since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958.

“The Gavotte makes a perfectly sweet, well-mannered miniature but the Chaconne, such a towering solo piece in itself, doesn’t gain a great deal from this treatment...There’s redemption, however, in crisp and exciting readings of the Violin Concertos Nos 1 and 2 (BWV 1041 and 1042), with Bell and the players in perfect accord.” The Observer, 5th October 2014 ****

“such is Bell's particular brand of ease with which he mixes traditional sensibility with the lighter articulations and gestures of recent tastes that one is instantly spellbound...Locating small shapes within a larger architecture is one of Bell's crowning virtues, alongside a depth of sound of almost Henryk Szeryng-like dimensions... the conception is original and exceptionally executed with searing and soaring artistic intent.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2014

Tianwa Yang (violin) & Markus Hadulla (piano)

The finale to this critically-acclaimed four-disc series contains some of Sarasate’s greatest – and also some of his rarest – transcriptions and arrangements, some of which have been in the repertoire of violinists since they were published. They include a delectable Chopin sequence, arrangements inspired by the music of French Baroque violinists, an early and beautifully constructed Souvenirs de Faust based on Gounod, and Sarasate’s own favourite concert piece, Raff’s La fée d’amour. “Yang throws off merciless chains of double stops and fingercrippling arabesques with scintillating aplomb … simply inimitable … Bravo!” (BBC Music Magazine on Volume 3, 8570893)

“We encounter Sarasate’s spontaneity and coalescence of tenacity and timidity in these distinctly Spanish-sounding transcriptions and arrangements...Yang conveys Chopin’s silky Nocturne No. 2 with an open humility and richness of sensitivity, rather than an aloof aristocracy so often heard in the playing of Chopin’s nocturnes.” MusicWeb International, 24th February 2014

The Italian Salvatore Licitra, who tragically died on September 5th 2011 after a motorbike accident, was one of the leading tenors of his generation in the highly sought-after dramatic Italian repertoire. A frequent guest at major opera and concert stages in Europe, the United States and the Far East, he was particularly devoted to Verdi repertoire.

As a tribute to this exceptionally gifted artist we are releasing a selection of his best arias and songs taken from operas from the dramatic Italian oeuvre. Operas by Giuseppi Verdi and Giacomo Puccini feature heavily in the track-listing with each disc opening with a show-stopping famous tenor aria; Nessun Dorma and Celeste Aida respectively.

The 2-CD set ends with five previously unreleased tracks - all well-loved Italian songs recorded with Marco Armiliato and The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

“The occasional slips reflect a voice which, if not always perfect in control, was always alive with emotional intensity. His final recordings, poignant in their exuberance, include "Funiculi, Funiculà" and "O sole mio".” The Observer, 29th January 2012
