In the January issue of BBC Music Magazine there is a full-page advertisement for a concert on 8th March at the Barbican, London "to mark International Women's Day". It is to be given by the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra.
The program consists entirely of male composers.
The photograph on the Barbican website shows members of the orchestra - all male. The photo on the orchestra website shows 2 women and 26 men. There are 8 soloists listed at the Barbican event, 7 of whom are men.
Is this how the Barbican and the Moscow Virtuosi really intend to mark International Women's Day?
