THMUS 511  An advanced course examining the harmonic principals of the tonal language and their evolution through history. Based on Nadia Boulanger’s method, the class involves extensive written and aural work on chorale harmonizations from triads to ninth chords, with special emphasis on doublings and chord spacings. Work evolves gradually from diatonic to chromatic. Analysis of music from all periods will also be covered, stressing harmonic issues as key elements of style and compositional organization. Required of all undergraduate Composition majors.
