MUSICOL 121 offers a broad overview of the history of Western music from the Baroque era to the present. The syllabus spans a vast range of material, touching on music by celebrated classical composers (Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, Verdi, Stravinsky, and more) as well as by significant jazz artists (Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis). Primarily designed to develop listening skills, the course aims to help students to better appreciate, interpret, describe, and write about music. Its chronological survey traces major shifts in musical aesthetics, form, function, and style, placing these shifts in cultural, historical, and social context. The course features three lectures per week as well as one weekly small-group discussion section. Assignments involve reading, listening, three brief concert reports, and four exams. No prior musical experience is required.
