MUSC 447 The Music of Haydn (1)

A study of the music and relevant issues of aesthetics, style, genre, and form in the music of Haydn, concentrating on the string quartets, the symphonies, and the late vocal works. The course will include analysis of musical structure and a study of the relations among genre, style, and form. Writings from Haydn's early biographers and excerpts from contemporaneous reviews will provide insight into eighteenth-century assessments of his music. More recent discussions of the music of Haydn will acquaint students with present-day issues that arise in scholarly discussions of Haydn's music.
