|Introduction to Schenkerian Analysis - 86618 - MUS 485 - 01|
This seminar course examines both the analytical techniques and the cultural / philosophical backdrop for one of the most seminal figures in music theory, Heinrich Schenker (1868-1935). Schenker's comprehensive approach toward understanding and assessing the organizational principles central to tonal music revolutionized the field of music theory. Schenker's methodology is firmly entrenched in the field of music theory. The course requires prior knowledge of general analytical techniques—and in particular, skills that are acquired in the two-year music theory "core," and beyond. The seminar will carry a workload commensurate with similar fourth-year offerings at the U of S.
Prerequisite(s): MUS 234 and one of MUS 346, MUS 367, MUS 447 or MUS 457; or by approval of the department.
Note: Students who took MUS 498.3 Schenkerian Analysis may not take this course for credit.
