The Vienna Philharmonic's famous New Year's Day concert set tongues wagging this year with the appearance of a female viola player - Ursula Plaichinger.
The press reported that the orchestra had finally appointed its first female musician, 6 years after it was forced to drop its all male rule. In fact Plaichinger isn't a member of the orchestra but she is the only woman to have passed their audition process.
David Gallagher has covered the Vienna Philharmonic New Year's Day concert for the BBC for the past 10 years and reports to us on the present situation there with regards to women musicians.
