MUS 42 From Plato to Mozart (Early Classical Music)

This course introduces students to the composers, repertoires, and cultures of early Western music from ancient civilizations to ca. 1800. By examining a wide selection of instrumental and vocal genres, we will reflect on critical issues of history, repertoire, virtuosity, class, religion, nationalism, exoticism, censorship, and humor. Among the composers we will study are Comtessa de Dia, Hildegard de Bingen, Dufay, Josquin, Palestrina, Monteverdi, Pachelbel, Corelli, Purcell, Strozzi, J.S. Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart.

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.
