MUSIC 4102 - [Topics in Music Analysis]

Spring. Offered on demand. 4 credits. Student option grading.


A critical survey of important analytical approaches to tonal music not covered in lower-level theory courses. The topics will be selected from among the following, in part on the basis of student interest: phrase-rhythm; large-scale paragraph structure, especially in sonata-form expositions; structural-tonal (“Schenkerian”) voice-leading; thematic-motivic relations; and large-scale coherence in multimovement works. Frequent assignments and class presentations.
