A cat that enjoys playing the piano has had a piece of chamber music written for her by acclaimed Lithuanian conductor.

Nora's musical skills have made her a Youtube sensation, US media star, and also the object of a video on animal behaviour.

Mindaugas Piecaitis's four-minute piece for the Klaipeda chamber orchestra had its premiere on Friday, with a video of the six-year-old feline soloist in the background.

Jane Bennett-Powell reports.
