MUSIC 3130 - [Counterpoint]

Spring. Offered on demand. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

E. Marshall.

This seminar explores counterpoint as a creative compositional idea, pedagogical and theoretical tool, and general musical phenomenon. Students pursue expertise in three interconnected areas: a thorough grounding in Fuxian species counterpoint practice, an understanding of musical concepts central to species counterpoint and in other types of contrapuntal design, and the ability to listen to and interpret counterpoint and polyphony in a diverse collection of notated and non-notated musics, with an emphasis on musical resources and performances at Cornell.
