Music in Time, Place & Ideas I/II/III
ABOUT THIS CLASS
This class examines the changing repertories and practices of music from Europe. We examine composers’ creative choices and assumptions, as well as those of their patrons and audiences, from the Middle Ages to the present. As part of the core history curriculum of the Cali School of Music, it draws on a variety of perspectives relating to music, including literature, philosophy, history, art, and science. In the third semester, there is special consideration of the nexus between German history and music via Thomas Mann’s Doctor Faustus.
