Lady Solti and her two daughters outside Westminster Abbey yesterday after a tribute to the conductor Sir Georg Solti who died last year.

Prince Charles was there to hear Dame Kiri Te Kanawa sing a Richard Strauss aria as musicians played some of Solti's favourite pieces and Dame Diana Rigg read from the Book of Revelations.

In his address, the Dean of Westminster, Dr Wesley Carr, described Solti as 'one of the most distinguished and influential musicians of this century, a truly international figure'
