Penultimate night of the BBC Proms 2000

'...The World Orchestra for Peace reassembles tonight on a date that has double significance: it was on the penultimate night of the 1996 season that Solti conducted his last ever Prom, while today marks 60 years since Goering unleashed his Blitz on wartime London (and destroyed the Queen’s Hall, the Proms’ original home, in the process).'  BBC Proms programme
