 MUSC 413 001Seminar2 Tue Thu10:3012:00

Contemporary Art Music: Theory and Analysis. This course explores the diverse concert-music repertoire since 1950, so in a sense it is a continuation and enrichment of Music 300. Although the course focuses primarily on compositional, theoretical, and analytical issues, the position of the works with respect to important social, aesthetic, and philosophical trends will also be considered. A wide range of composers and styles will be considered, beginning with the European modernists of the 1950s, but branching out to include (according to students' interests) postmodern works by eminent American, Canadian, and Asian composers.

The course is designed for fourth-year undergraduates and first-year graduate students. The latter will participate at a level appropriate to their degree program and specialty, possibly including performing, lecturing, or original research, as determined in consultation with the instructor.

 MUSC 414 001Lecture1 Tue Thu9:3011:00

Topic: Eighteenth-century Counterpoint. Beginning with the composition of short, highly controlled exercises, the course will proceed through canon, chorale preludes, trio sonatas, and inventions to the study of fugue. Models will be analyzed as a basis for creative work by students. Music 200 and 220 are prerequisite to this course. With 533J.
