Royal College of Music
Carola currently works at the Royal College of Music in London, lecturing in the History of Music. In 2017 her research into the Viennese composer Johanna Müller-Hermann was chosen by BBC Radio Three for their project Five Women Composers. In 2019, Carola commissioned a song-cycle Endless Forms Most Beautiful for voice and string quartet by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, with funds from Arts Council England, and premièred it at the Oxford Lieder Festival. In 2022, Carola will be broadcast on Radio 3 when Johanna Müller-Hermann is Composer of the Week. Her article ‘Odaline de la Martinez – conductor, composer, entrepreneur, leader’ is due to be published in The Routledge Companion to Women in Music Leadership in 2023.
Links between creative women and with creative men. This introduces the reader to the creative world in Vienna and links the women that the book discusses to each other, to other important women, and to the already well-known male artists, writers and musicians.
