This seminar explores analytical approaches to chromatic tonal music after Tristan. We will consider music by Liszt, Wagner, Wolf, Franck, Ives, Schoenberg, Scriabin, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich. Class sessions will pursue exploratory analyses based on ideas from the assigned reading. One or two articles will be read each week. Authors covered include Carl Weitzmann, Ernst Kurth, Hugo Riemann, Ludwig Thuille, Arnold Schoenberg, Felix Salzer, Robert Bailey, Carl Dahlhaus, Gregory Proctor, Robert Morgan, Patrick McCreless, Deborah Stein, and Daniel Harrison. Student work will consist of several short analysis assignments and a final research paper. Research papers may be either analytical or theoretical in orientation. All student work will be presented during class sessions.
