Primary Instructor:

This course surveys the development of a genre that helped to define the so-called classical era as a music-historical epoch. While due attention will be given to the relevant historical and social contexts, the chief matter of the course will be music produced in and around Vienna, by Haydn (from Op. 17 on), Mozart, and Beethoven (through Op. 74, a quartet composed in the year of Haydn's death). Our analytical frameworks will range from Ratner and Rosen to Caplin and Hepokoski/Darcy. Three analytical papers will be assigned (two for undergraduates), plus a final examination. In-class performance will be encouraged.

Note:
The Dover reprints strike the best balance between reliability and affordability (and their Haydn reprints already have measure numbers). Kalmus editions are less expensive . . . and less reliable. The best option, for those willing to make the investment, is to purchase the study scores based on the critical editions published by Henle (for Haydn and Beethoven) and Barenreiter (for Mozart). The newest recordings tend to use these editions, and in some cases (e.g., Haydn's Op. 20) the readings and articulations are quite different from those in earlier editions. We will be proceeding chronologically, so you may purchase scores as we need them.
