MUS HIST 3800/5800 Music History Survey for Graduates

This course is a comprehensive review of music history intended for graduate students. The course is organized in three large units. The modules within each unit are designed to address the primary concepts of Western music from the Middle Ages through the Twentieth Century, providing practice in listening techniques and score-reading. We will give an historical perspective to the musical styles and development of music, turn a critical eye on the basis of stylistic generalizations, and consider music’s function in society, its political contexts, and its reality as artifact and performance.
