FILM 287 - Music in Classic French Cinema: 1930-1960

Semester Offered: Fall
0.5 unit(s)
(Same as MUSI 287 ) The scholarly study of film music is a burgeoning topic. And yet a bias towards more recent film scores, taken together with Hollywood’s overwhelming influence, has tended to overshadow the accomplishments of European composers. This course examines a number of French films whose reputations rest in no small measure on their scores. We begin with an introduction to the terminology of film music studies, and then proceed to the works themselves, examining in detail the various uses to which music is put. Musical literacy is not required.  Brian Mann.

Prerequisite(s): One course in either Music or Film Studies.

First six-week course.

Two 75-minute periods.

Course Format: CLS
