Ukraine: Cardiff orchestra pulls Tchaikovsky music over war

A Welsh orchestra has dropped music by Russian composer Tchaikovsky from a concert because of the Ukraine war.

Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra said it would be "inappropriate at this time" to perform the composer's music after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The orchestra said a member had family in Ukraine and it was also aware some of Tchaikovsky's work was deemed offensive to Ukrainians.
