MUSI 2103 [0.5 credit] Music in an Age of Order, Invention, and Revolution

Peace and revolution, faith and secularism, noble privilege and bourgeois commerce: fundamental contradictions underlying the creative work of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven. This course studies their compositions—operas, sacred works, symphonies, chamber music—within the political, social and cultural institutions of their times (ca. 1730-1815).
Precludes additional credit for MUSI 2002.
Prerequisite(s): second-year standing.
Lectures three hours a week.
