Intensive study of a particular style or method of analysis, usually of a specific musical genre. Enrolment is limited.
This year, MUSC 445 will focus on advanced tonal analysis, examining the music of the mid- to late-Romantic era with a particular emphasis on the compositional style of Brahms. Topics to be discussed include chromatic harmony, Neo-Classicism, metric distortions, and variation forms.
As this is a seminar-format class, students will be expected to actively participate in class discussion and analysis, to suitably prepare the assigned readings, analyses, and assignments, and to maintain regular attendance, all of which will feature strongly in the final course grade.
