Daniel Barenboim designs 'radical' new piano
26 May 2015
Pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim has unveiled a new type of piano, which he says is "radically different" to the standard concert grand.
It is built with straight, parallel strings, promising a superior sound to a regular piano, in which the strings are installed diagonally.
Barenboim launched the instrument at London's Royal Festival Hall, in advance of his Schubert recital series.
He intends to perform the entire series on the new piano.
