Western Art Music: Crusades to Colonialism [MUSC 210]

MUSC 210/3.0 Western Art Music: Crusades to Colonialism

This course is an examination of the styles, genres, and composers of Western art music between ca. 1000 and 1800 CE. Exploring the historical trajectory of Western music in global context, we will continue to build skills to critically analyze musical works and connect their production with social and cultural contexts. Historiography, global entanglements, and the effects of European Colonialism on European concert music are key concepts we will explore.

Taught by: Professor Margaret Walker
