NZSO reworks performances due to social distancing

From Morning Report, 7:57 am on 11 September 2020

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra has reworked upcoming performances in Auckland and Wellington because parts of the set list couldn't be played while maintaining distance between musicians.

Three Spanish-influenced pieces have been tossed out. In their place are two new works that permit a roomier arrangement.

Peter Biggs is the chief executive of the NZSO.
