MUSIC 1202

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

What is "classical" music anyway? And how does its history get told? This course examines the past 250 years of European and American art music through an American-centric perspective to explore how musical meaning changes between contexts and over time. Through a series of case studies that showcase the shifting cultural contexts surrounding the production and reception of music, we'll think critically about music's composition, circulation, reception, and politics, while considering the place of jazz and popular music in the "classical canon." The course emphasizes close listening and students will increase their fluency in speaking and writing about music.

When Offered Spring.
