Instrumental Music: The Symphony from Haydn to Florence Price

MUS 225

Info tab content
This course examines the development of the symphony from the eighteenth to the middle of the twentieth century, particularly in terms of musical procedures, composer background, and cultural contexts. Repertory studied includes creative voices beyond the traditional symphonic canon. The course is designed to be accessible to non-majors with a focus on listening, and the ability to follow musical notation is quite helpful. Supplemental readings reinforce technical discussion and broaden historical context introduced in lectures.
