MU286 – Music of the Romantic and Early-Modern Eras.
Study of musical forms, styles, media and aesthetic criteria in the rapid and dramatic cultural changes of the ages of Romanticism and early Modernism. The rise of the composer as an individualist in the Romantic Age, and the disintegration of the traditional musical cannon at the end of the 19th Century until WWI will serve as a central theme. Special attention will be given to the music of Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, Berlioz, Brahms, Wagner, Verdi, Debussy, Stravinsky and Schönberg.
