MUSI 013. Harmony, Counterpoint, and Form 3
Continues and extends the work of Music 12 to encompass an expanded vocabulary of chromatic tonal harmony, based on Western art music of the 18th and 19th centuries. The course includes analysis of smaller and larger works by such composers as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, and Wagner; in-depth study of such large-scale topics as sonata form; and written musical exercises ranging from harmonizations of bass and melody lines to original compositions in chorale style.
All MUSI 013 students must register for an appropriate level of MUSI 040C for 0 or 0.5 credit. Keyboard skills lessons may also be required for some students.
