LARTS 340 — Frozen Music: On Interrelating the Arts

3 credits
Greta Berman and Samuel Zyman

Prerequisite: LARTS 112  Architecture has sometimes been called frozen music. This course begins in 16th-century Venice, where the architecture and opulent setting help illuminate Venetian music, and especially the blossoming of opera in that city. We will start by looking at Palladio’s architecture, the paintings of Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto, and the music of Gabrieli and Monteverdi. We will continue through the mid-19th century in France. The course focuses on important art and music of the periods. Using slides, musical demonstrations, and recordings, we will examine many moments in time and places where art and music come together.
