GRMUS H653 — Schumann at Work: Learning From the Manuscripts

2 credits
Michael Musgrave

This course considers Schumann as a composer of piano, vocal, orchestral, and chamber works, with special reference made to sketches and revisions of his compositions as seen in the manuscripts and scores of the Juilliard Manuscript Collection. These works will be examined in the context of Schumann’s total output and students will discuss changing performance traditions and the relation of the materials to these traditions. The course will provide an opportunity to examine the original documents as well as reference their digital images.
