Tchaikovsky

Audio will be available later today.

We don't hear music from New Zealand very often, but the capital, Wellington, is home to a thriving classical music scene. The New Zealand Symphony is based there. We hear them on tour in Auckland. Alexander Lazarev conducts "The Tempest," by Tchaikovsky.
