MUS 101 Fall 2012 Listening to Music: An Introduction to the Western Classical Tradition

When you listen to music--on the radio, on your Ipod, at a concert--how much do you really hear? This course aims to refine students' listening skills to enhance their understanding and enjoyment of music, while providing an introduction to the major composers, musical styles, and genres of the Western classical tradition. We will study music from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern periods, including works by composers such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler, and Stravinsky. Genres to be covered include the symphony, string quartet, sonata, opera, song, and choral music. Attendance at selected concerts on campus required.
