Protesting with music at alleged rights abuses in Russia

Some of the top classical concert virtuosos have got together to launch a protest at alleged human rights abuses in Russia.

They have staged a concert in honour of the jailed Russian oligarch Mikail Khordokovsky and have called for his release.

Anastasya Uspenskaya has been in Strasbourg to talk to them and to hear their music.
