Course Description

MUS 118
Classical and Romantic Music
Spring

This course takes the form of a survey of the repertory of European Art Music, 1750--1900. We study the major musical genres – including symphony, sonata, character piece, opera, tone poem – and compositional styles/forms from the Enlightenment to late Romanticism. We also explore some of the musical voices – those of women and people of color – which are usually overlooked in traditional histories of music. Includes a wide selection of repertory, readings in music history, critical analysis of selected works, and a consideration of the music’s cultural, social, political contexts.
Offered every other year beginning 2020-21.
