MUS 44 Music in the Twentieth Century

In classical music, the twentieth century was characterized by a tension between innovative experiments with new styles, media, and techniques and the continuing evolution of older musical forms and languages. Drawing on the work of the century's most influential composers, including Schoenberg, Berg, Webern, Ives, Bartok, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Cage, Britten, Reich, Glass, and Adams, the course will trace the interplay of innovation, tradition, and reinvention in twentieth-century concert music.

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.
