I will never forget attending a wonderful Prom concert in 1968 when that amazing cellist Rostropovich played Dvorak's cello concert with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra on the very day that the Soviet Union invaded Czechoslovakia.  It was such a moving performance that there was not a dry eye in the RAH.  Since then we have attended so many amazing concerts and certainly the Prom concerts are a festival of which you and the BBC can be immensely proud and we are grateful for.
