The course surveys Beethoven's music in the appropriate stylistic, biographical, historical, and cultural contexts.  Emphasis will fall on the analysis and interpretation of finished works (rather than sketch studies and "compositional genesis"). Weekly reading assignments will supplement the lectures and introduce students to the breadth of approaches taken in current Beethoven scholarship. The textbook will be Lewis Lockwood's Beethoven (paperback edition, 2003). 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. Grades will be based on in-class participation, two analytical essays (10-12 pages each), and one examination (final). Graduate students elect MUSICOL 507.
