MUSC 3500 Form and Analysis

Prerequisite: MUSC 2510. The study of the overall harmonic and thematic organization of musical compositions from the common-practice period (c. 1600 to 1900). In addition, an examination of 20th c. and 21st c. forms will be included. Drawing on all of the theoretical knowledge gained in the 4-semester Music Theory sequence, this course focuses first on small structures (motives, phrases, etc.) and gradually progresses to large forms (sonata, rondo, etc.) and multi-movement forms (symphony, concerto, etc.)
