The course meets Thursdays from 3 until 6 pm.
Books for the course:
There will also be xeroxed excerpts from the following books:
Notes: One 6000 word monograph on a special topic will be required for the course. It
should reflect an oral presentation that was given in the seminar. This presentation would consist
of a comparative study of musical works which reflect the various aesthetic positions in the
readings. By the second week, each student should have picked a topic; and there should be nine
presentations in all, one from each student. If there are more than nine students in the class,
some topics will be shared.
Additional readings will be assigned as the individual interests of students are developed through the
oral presentations. These will be added as used in the class over time.
