Music in the Classical Period

June 26–August 2, 2017 / Monday, Wednesday, 2–4:30 p.m.
Room: NSL 404

Stephen Armstrong

Although the works of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven serve as the primary “texts” of this course, close attention is paid to the history of styles and contexts of music-making from the so-called early classic period through the early 19th century. The relation of musical style to genre, performance venue, and audience is considered alongside changes in systems of patronage, dissemination of music as a commodity, private and public concert traditions, and performance practices documented in contemporary treatises.
