HUM 539 Classical Music: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know and More

Course Description

What is classical music? And why is it one of our most enduring art forms? Review classical music’s historical and stylistic periods. Focus on harmony, melody, rhythm and sound – the building blocks of art music – and discover how they come together to express the inexpressible. Topics include solo, chamber, vocal and orchestral music, the structure of an orchestra, musical families, the art of listening, and concert etiquette basics. This is a companion course to HUM 405 Evenings with the Philharmonic: an ideal first course for those new to classical music; or a follow-up for those who have already taken Evenings with the Philharmonic.
