Exactly! If he covets a spot in an all male orchestra, he may
audition for the Vienna or the Berlin. Equal rights never meant equal
If you're talking about the Berliner Philarmoniker, the list of its members is here:http://www.berlin-ph...m/de/orchester/
and first names like "Madeleine", "Aline", "Cornelia", "Bettina" or "Rachel" don't sound
very masculine to me. (But perhaps I have misunderstood your post.)
And wasn't the Vienna orchestra famous for its policy excluding women until the late 1990s ?
It is not really surprising that even now there are not many women there.
