Exclusive: Revolution at the Vienna Philharmonicmain
Conservative members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, alarmed at the recent pace of change, voted out their elected leaders in a secret ballot this morning.
Andreas Grossbauer, who led the orchestra towards greater transparency about its Nazi past and towards greater gender equality in its ranks, was deposed.
The new chiefs are Daniel Froschauer, a violinist (pictured), as chairman and Michael Bladerer, double-bass, as managing director.
The next sound you will hear is the clocks being turned back.
