The 'radical' Barenboim piano unveiled

One of the world's most distinguished conductors and pianists, Daniel Barenboim, has unveiled a new type of grand piano.

He says it is "radically different" to the standard concert grand as it is built with straight, parallel strings that produce a superior sound.

Will Gompertz is at the Royal Festival Hall on London's South Bank where the piano is being unveiled.
