MUSC 257

Advanced Theory and Analysis I

Prerequisite: MUSC 218. This course is a continuation of the study of theoretical and compositional devices and how harmonic organization, rhythmic aspects, matters of texture, sonority, tension and relaxation, and coherence and unity impact larger forms of the Common Practice period. We will also study late 19th-century chromatic harmony and 20th-century compositional techniques. III.O, V.6a
