MUSI 140 - Introduction to Western Art Music

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)

A study of selected topics in the history of Western music.

Topic for 2017/18a: Classical Music at the Crossroads. This course examines two pivotal moments in the history of European music: the rise of the Classic style, as epitomized in the works of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven; and the crisis of early modernism in the years preceding the First World War. Brian Mann.

Open to all classes. Previous musical training not required. May not be counted in the requirements for concentration. Music 140 is not required for MUSI 141 , therefore these two courses may be taken in any order.

Two 75-minute periods.
