Vienna Philharmonic comes full circle

My recent article Anti-Semitism comes full circle generated a lot of interest. So here, with thanks to a regular reader, is a link to another thought provoking article about the Vienna Philharmonic -Tokenism and Firings . This is just one of several important articles on the website of William Osborne, a site that promotes inclusiveness of race, religion and gender in the classical music community. Need I say more?

And don't let's pretend the problem is confined to distant Vienna - read here about the UK and the US.
My photo, from William Osborne's website, shows a New York protest against the Vienna Philharmonic's equality policies outside Carnegie Hall in 1997.

I got really impressed with the second or the given link article i.e. Tokenism and Firing. As I respect women and their right it was very fascinating to me. Thank you for providing such an article.
