Description

Philosopher Roland Barthes once described the art of song as a “moment of civilization” that is now past. Barthes insight will lead us through the examination of a number of representative Lieder and melodies that illuminate the core of this “moment.” We will consider how, after 1800, art song articulates an impetus towards expression that is essentially modern. The following topics will be addressed in detail: the nature of music and the romantic metaphysics of sound, ideas of musical representation, the relationship of music and words, forms of expression, musical style and the politics of song and singing. Lectures are complemented with seminar periods, including student presentations. During seminar periods we will work collectively on our listening and analytical skills and reflect on assigned readings.

Intended Audience:

Graduate students elect MUSICOL 524.
