MUSA 3276 Chopin (Fall/Spring: 3 )
This course will look in depth at the works of this early-mid 19th century Polish/French composer including chamber music, concertos, and songs in addition to well-known and lesser-known solo and duo piano pieces. In order to create a context, the course will begin by looking at important pianistic and non-pianistic influences on Chopin's music, including Bach, Mozart, Field, and Italian bel canto opera among others, as well as contemporary musicians such as Schumann and Liszt. At the end of the semester, some time will be spent briefly exploring the influence Chopin had on subsequent composers in the latter part of the 19th century and into the 20th century.
