Module overview

This module focuses on the detailed 'hands-on' analysis of works of European art music, guided by a selection of classic and contemporary theoretical and analytical writings that challenge assumptions about the inner structure of musical works. Extramusical matters may be considered too. The module will focus on two areas of music theory and analysis, with approximately half the semester being spent on each. It is taught together with MUSI6023 Analytical Techniques, which is designed for students taking Music's MMus degree; students on the undergraduate module will attend the same seminars and do the same reading, but will complete shorter assignments.
