Course Description

A composer of very complex music writes, “I think the listening experience is extraordinarily complex, spontaneous, intuitive, naïve, and sophisticated, all at the same time.” Sharing the joy of new music, whether you’re discovering a masterpiece or having an interesting experience with music, we’ll explore many ways to listen to and learn about modern and post-modern music. Each class will focus on one work of music chosen from favorite works of American composers ranging from Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, to the minimalist “anthem” In C, with works by Ives, Gershwin, Ravel, Messiaen, Copland, Cage, Reich, and Glass to the present. The course does not assume the music lover brings any previous knowledge, but offers insights also intended to enrich the experience of all listeners.
