Twentieth-Century Music after WW II
CLass meets on Thursdays from 3:00-6:00 PM.
The format of the seminar will be open ended, with each team specializing in two distinct areas, pieces or composers. After a general discussion on January 23, students should be prepared to announce their report topics. Notice that the teams that first report earlier in the quarter will have the luxury of a late-quarter second report.
Two presentations are required for the class: one relating to the Polish renaissance (plus Ligeti) and one relating to a portion of a Britten Opera. Once the topics are selected, a revised syllabus with appropriate readings will be handed out. Written versions of the presentations are due, only after the tenth week of class; but an outline of the topic sould be submitted shortly after the oral presentation.
