This course explores the chamber music repertory from the period of the so-called Viennese classicists through roughly the end of the nineteenth century. Its aim is to familiarize students with a broad range of compositions as well as with ongoing scholarly discussions of the music relating to such issues as form, style, generic convention, and intertextuality. A central theme of the course concerns the manner in which nineteenth-century composers of chamber music came to terms with the legacy of their late eighteenth-century predecessors, particularly within the Austro-Germanic musical tradition. Naturally, the course will also address a number of issues inextricably bound up with the composition and performance of chamber music, including domestic music-making and the widening gulf between public and private spheres of musical life that characterized the time period in question. Assignments will involve listening, frequent score analysis, and readings on reserve or available online. Grading will be based on class participation and written work, including a term paper to be completed in consultation with the instructor. While the course is designed primarily for undergraduate and graduate students in music, non-music majors who can follow scores and are acquainted with the rudiments of music theory will also be welcome. Graduate students elect MUSICOL 505.
