Primary Instructor:

This course both traces and analyzes the evolution of music in the twentieth century, examining major stylistic developments against the background of shifting or competing aesthetic, ideological, social, and political currents. Central to the course is a consideration of “modernism,” and whether it is synonymous with twentieth-century music, but the course will also interrogate how to define modernism’s beginnings in music as well as its different stages of progression, including postmodernism. The class will consist of formal lectures as well as class discussions of readings and of specific musical works. There will be two large writing assignments as well as two major listening exams.
