Scandals that Rock the Classical Music World

 

MUSC 245/3.0

 

Barbaric practices, gruesome tales, scandalous affairs, cult activity, theft, jail and more!

This course will explore the secret lives of the “aristocratic” classical composers that you won't find in any textbook.  We will travel from the Renaissance through to current issues exploring the personal lives of some of history's most beloved composers/musicians, connecting them to historical and political circumstances and seeing how (if) they affected the music we cherish today.
