MUS 43 From Beethoven to Now (Modern Classical Music)

This course introduces the composers, repertoires, and cultures of Western music from ca. 1800 to the present. We consider how political revolutions in Europe and the Americas created globalizing forces that destabilized the very definability of Westernness (and of music) over these past two centuries. Among the many composers we will study are Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Schumann, Wagner, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Debussy, Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Crawford, Cage, Ligeti, Oliveros, Lachenmann, Reich, Eastman, Adès, Miranda, and Sasaki.

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.
