The course explores a range of historical and theoretical aspects related to Western art music from the ancient Greeks to the late C19th. There will be a concentration on the significant historical, aesthetic and philosophical trends of the 18th and 19th centuries, along with the main theoretical conventions of tonal music, including thematic, harmonic, stylistic and formal aspects of Classicism and Romanticism. Score reading and musical analysis of representative works will be undertaken, with students developing critical listening skills and making use of online technologies to explore the history of Western art music.
