Radio 4 For One Night Only - The Prom of Peace

Quite ironic that this was on the radio today with Russia in Georgia - and even more ironic at the time when a Russian soloist and orchestra were playing Czech music during the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia (as it was then) in 1968.

More Czech music at the Proms tonight and next Thursday.
