MUSI 324 - Musical Analysis and Interpretation: Theory, Perception, and Performance

1 unit(s)
This intensive focuses on in-depth analysis of one substantial notated piece of music drawn from repertory students are performing in recitals, using as inspiration for compositions, or writing about for theses. We apply various analytical tools and approaches appropriate to the works under study, including learning new approaches as necessary. Students keep journals on their developing understanding of the works under study and how that understanding informs their perceptions and decisions. Periodically, students share their progress with the entire group. Based on their analyses, students prepare one piece of writing designed to communicate to a general musically-interested audience (e.g., a program note, review, or lecture-recital presentation) and another geared toward specialists in their field. The intensive culminates in a mini-conference/recital presenting results from the semester’s work. Jonathan Chenette.
