MUS 201 Music History and Literature: 1600-1915

This course surveys the music of the Western "cultivated" tradition from 1600-1915 (the "Baroque," "Classical," and "Romantic" periods). The repertoire is presented through lectures, discussion, readings, and sound recordings. Emphasis is on an analysis of and engagement with actual musical compositions, representative of the principal stylistic developments characteristic of each of the three major style periods.
