The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is touring the country playing some of your favourite classical hits. Principal cello Andrew Joyce tells us why these works by composers Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Debussy and NZ’s own Gillian Whitehead have become so popular.
We explore music that will make you fall in love with the classical genre, including recommendations from some top conductors, musicians and critics, courtesy of the New York Times music editor.
