Courses in Music History and Musicology


This page was created at 5:18 PM on Thu, Oct 3, 2002.

Fall Academic Term, 2002 (September 3 - December 20)


It is possible for LS&A students to elect a concentration program in music, and this program is described in the LS&A Bulletin. In addition, music courses are frequently elected by LS&A students not concentrating in Music. Courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, and Music Theory are elected for LS&A credit. Some of these courses can be used in an area distribution plan. LS&A students may elect music PERFORMANCE courses for degree credit, but this credit counts toward the maximum twelve non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward an AB/BS degree or twenty non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward a BGS degree. Courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, Music Theory, and Performing Arts Technology are listed in the Time Schedule under the School of Music.

The following courses count as LS&A courses for LS&A degree credit.

This course is devoted to the study of opera in the first two centuries of its existence, from its beginnings to nearly the end of the 18th century. Here opera is to be studied critically as music, as theater, as spectacle, as performance medium, and as cultural expression. Special aspects of the course will include a consideration of operatic eroticism, a look at opera's arrival in the Americas, and a focus on the staging practices of early operas. While some of the lectures and listening assignments will be organized around excerpts, others will be designed to focus on whole operas, their musical dramaturgy, historical significance, economics, modes of production, and impact and reception in performance. Composers to be studied include Monteverdi, Cavalli, Lully, Purcell, Hidalgo, A. Scarlatti, Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Mozart, Haydn, Piccinni. The assignments in this course will be primarily listening assignments, to be supplemented by score study, readings from the course pack or materials on reserve, and some in-class performances. Grades will be based on written work and class participation. Open to upper-level LS&A and non-music students, to graduate students in the performing arts and humanities, and to all students in the School of Music.
