GRMUS H667 — Chamber Music: From the Home to the Concert Hall

2 credits
Fall
Aaron Wunsch

While identified as private by name, chamber music today is very much a public genre. This course will investigate the musical and social changes that prompted the gradual shift from the home to the concert hall. Works by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Spohr, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, and Fauré will be discussed with an eye toward how an understanding of the context of this music can open our interpretation of it today. Varying approaches will be explored through both in-class and recorded performances.
