The course focuses on European music of the 15th and 16th centuries. Its goal is to lead students to develop a critical and historical understanding of the musical life of this period and of the placement of this repertory into the contexts of Renaissance culture and of Western music history. To achieve this purpose we will not only take a close look at musical works, genres, styles, forms, composers, etc., but we will also study the political, religious and social institutions that contributed to creating such a flourishing musical culture. Issues of performance practice (such as ornamentation, improvisation, and musica ficta) will be central to the course.
