EVDOL 010 — Understanding Classical Music

Scott Eyerly
What is the difference between a melody and a motive? What is sonata form? What are the characteristics of different musical periods and who were the major composers? These are some of the topics covered in this course, where both novices and experienced concert-goers expand their horizons, from chant to Chopin to Copland. Students get an overview of classical music history and common musical concepts, which are explained in class lectures and demonstrated by great recordings. By learning who, how, and what to listen for, students enhance their understanding and enjoyment of classical music.
