Class Details

This course will examine the extraordinary life and musical genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Through lectures, discussion, readings, and guided listening, students will gain appreciation of Mozart’s classical compositional style and familiarity with many of his greatest works. Among the topics we will explore are Mozart’s pivotal position as a musician in Viennese society; his childlike nature and exquisite artistry; his relationship with his domineering father Leopold; his ties to Haydn and Beethoven; and the myths about Mozart, including that he was murdered by Salieri, that arose in the over two centuries since his death.
