Music and Context: Before 1800

A study of central figures, genres, representative works and stylistic developments in music before 1800, with an emphasis on music of the Baroque and Classical eras. Relationships between this music and its broader social, cultural, political, and performance contexts will be examined. Students will learn to aurally identify the characteristics of and critically interpret a range of historical musical styles; they will also acquire the skills necessary for independent research into musical repertoire and literature.
