ITAL 323 - Intersections in Music and Literature

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
(Same as  MRST 323  and MUSI 323 ) Topic for 2017/18b: The Italian Madrigal, Music and Poetry in the Renaissance. This course examines the history of the sixteenth-and early seventeenth-century Italian madrigal and related secular forms, with close attention to the varieties of Italian poetry that composers set to music throughout the madrigal’s lengthy history. In particular, we consider the madrigalists’ responses to Petrarch’s Canzoniere, Tasso’s Gerusalemme liberata, and Guarini’s Il Pastor Fido. The course also examines the role of less exalted poetry (“poesia per musica”) in the genre’s history. Brian Mann.

Prerequisites: MUSI 105 /MUSI 106 ; MUSI 205 ; MUSI 246 /MUSI 247 , or permission of the instructor.
