THMUS 311 — Theory III: Chromatic Harmony and Analysis

3 credits

Prerequisite: THMUS 211 . This course introduces large-scale forms (sonata form, rondo, and ternary) as well as principles of chromatic harmony. An emphasis is placed on the expressive meaning of chromatic harmonies and also on the use of chromatic features in complete, large-scale movements. Analytical and model-composition projects draw from the Classical repertoire (especially sonata forms) and representative, early 19th-century genres (such as Lieder and character pieces).
