Classes under this number offer a more in-depth look at historical eras and topics or repertories associated with a specific period of music history. Classes will either focus on one historical epoch (Medieval, Renaisssance, Baroque). The purpose of this course is to give students the opportunity to engage deeply with musical objects, both historically and analytically, as well as to expose them to a range of methodologies with which to study music. (Formerly Music 120, 121,122).
In a two-part post, the Penn Gazette Arts and Culture blog features music listening suggestions from various staff and faculty at the Music Department. Both Part 1 and Part 2 highlight some new and interesting summer listening suggestions.
