MUSC-332 Baroque Through The Enlightenment
Fall for 2007-2008
This course examines the development of European music between the 16th century and 18th centuries. The approach to the material is chronological and it will incorporate discussion of specific musical compositions and their attributes which distinguish and define the concepts of the Baroque, Pre-Classic, and Classic eras. Emphasis will be devoted to the development of sacred and secular vocal music (opera, oratorio, cantata, and passion), the growth of autonomous instrumental forms (sonata, symphony, concerto) and the sociology of contemporary music. The compositions of Monteverdi, Corelli, Vivaldi, Bach, Pergolesi, Haydn, Mozart and early Beethoven will receive considerable attention.
