MUS 630 - Perspectives on Western Music

A musicology course devoted to the study of significant works from the Western musical tradition in their cultural contexts. The main focus will be on finding creative ways to interpret the classics by approaching them from multiple perspectives. Class discussions will be guided by concepts of narrativity, performativity, intertextuality, and paradigms borrowed from topic theory, semiotics, and others. Coursework will include online listening, viewing videos, score analyses, readings, and presentations on selected classical compositions from various historical periods. In addition, students will complete an independent project in which they will demonstrate an application of concepts learned in the course to their professional field.
