  1. Very moving and tremendous music. Never heard it so visceral. Who was conductor? No women in orchestra at that time.. Thank you. Nicky- Joe’s loving companion.

  2. The conductor was Solti, not yet Sir Georg. You can spot two (I think two) women in the traditional role of harpists, but yes that’s it. No women in the Vienna Philharmonic then, as a matter of official policy.
