MUS 10 Lives and Works of the Great Composers

Each offering of MUS 10 (an introductory-level course) will center on one or more composers—e.g., Handel, Beethoven, Brahms, Beach, Debussy, Shostakovich, Saariaho—whose works have shaped the course of musical and social history. We will study how music of composers resonated during their lifetimes, and additionally how this music has since lived on through modern performances, scholarship, curation, and popular culture (commercials, films, games). Assignments may include close listening exercises, concert outings, podcasts, papers, and multimedia creations.

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.
