We're compiling reading lists to reflect the various course handbooks at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. These lists will be available via Moodle/Mahara for our staff and students, but will also be available via our online catalogue (http://prism.talis.com/rcs/).
But did you know you can also compile tracklists on our streaming services, Naxos and Alexander Street Press's Classical Music Library?
Just for fun, let's start a tracklist. Give me your suggestions for classical music about strong women - like Wagner's The Ride of the Valkyries - and I'll compile a list after my week's annual leave.
Ian Higgins suggests via Twitter:-
"Beethoven's Leonore (esp the 3rd overture). Lots in Handel. Strong heroines in Berlioz - Cassandra, and Beatrice in his Much Ado."
Another suggestion via Twitter, from @Schopflin:-"Characters like Norma and Susanna in Figaro?"
