Content

An initial inquiry into the post-Renaissance emergence and development of polyphonic music in Europe, including a sampling of works from the Baroque (Bach), Classical (Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven), Romantic (Liszt, Chopin, Schumann), or Romantic-Nationalist (Berlioz, Wagner, Verdi) styles or periods. Based on a combination of readings and lectures on the overall historical context surrounding each composer's individual lifetime and output, with intensive listenings and musical analysis of the compositions concerned. Intended to develop a sense of music appreciation covering both the social, political, cultural, religious, and literary backgrounds or connections of great music, as well as its internal conditions and requirements (vis-a-vis notation, instruments, orchestras, performance skills and methods of composition). In addition to the existing pre-requisite " to have completed 23 credits" for this course , a new condition will be added as "to complete SPS 101 and SPS 102 courses at least with D grade" as of the Fall semester of 2015-2016 Academic Year. Students who failed from SPS 101 and SPS 102 courses, do not have right to take this course.

Objective

The main objectives are:
*To provide the tools for a basic understanding of western classical
music
*To introduce the important elements of musical trends within a
historical
perspective
*To explore the relationships between classical music and its
political,
social, cultural environments
*To emphasize the most important genres, styles, composers and
masterworks
of music
*To enhance the listening experience of classical music

Learning Outcome

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

- Identify the main themes in the history of European art music between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries
- Distinguish the stylistic properties of works of music representative of different historical periods
- Contextualize studied works of music in terms of cultural, historical, and biographical background
- Synthesize the generic and unique aspects of individual works of music
