MUSI 104. Chopin

This course will provide an in-depth historical study of Chopin's music. We will examine the full generic range of Chopin's compositions, taking into account the various socio-cultural, biographical and historical-political issues that have attached to specific genres. Throughout the semester we will also consider such broader questions as: why did Chopin restrict himself almost entirely to piano composition? How might we locate Chopin's work within the larger category of 19th-century musical romanticism? What does Chopin's music mean to us today?
