MUS 42 From Plato to Mozart (Early Classical Music)

This course introduces the composers and repertoires of Western classical music from ancient civilizations to ca. 1800. Our study emphasizes the development of musical instruments, the origins of written notation, and the constant search for new ways to organize sound. Examining numerous instrumental and vocal works, we will reflect on critical issues of history, virtuosity, class, gender, religion, censorship, and humor.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
