Musicology 121 offers an introduction to European and American art music from 1700 to the present.  The course aims to develop listening skills as well as an ability to think and to communicate effectively about music and sound.  The course provides a guided exploration of selected pieces from the repertory, to develop a culture of attentive listening that is sensitive to major shifts in musical aesthetics, changing notions of form and style, the history of musical performance, and the functions and meanings of music. This is a class without pre-requisites but students should come to class prepared after completing the listening and reading assignments.     Students in The Art of Music have the option of registering for the new Global Course Connection MUSPERF 200, section 121 (GCC Germany - Art of Music). This optional course is a field component to Musicol 121 designed to deepen the student's understanding of how music takes its place in the fabric of a city and how it becomes an archive of its history. Students registering for this optional compnent will travel to Germany (Berlin and Leipzig) during the Spring term.

Course Requirements:

There will be three in-class exams and two written assignments.

Class Format:

Three lectures/week and one small-group discussion section.
