Violinist to play for Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo


A Chinese American violinist will play in tribute to Nobel Peace Prize winner, Liu Xiaobo, at the award ceremony in Oslo next Friday.

Mr Liu is in prison in China and is not allowed to attend himself, nor are many of his friends and relatives.

In the absence of the winner, violinist Lynn Chang will perform.

He is based in Boston, from where he told BBC World Service's Claire Bolderson why it had not been an easy decision to attend.
