Outline Of Syllabus
Analysis consists of looking at and listening to music to deepen our understanding of how it works. In this module we will develop our responses to Western tonal music of the mid-18th to mid-19th centuries, inverstigating in particular how musical processes, such as structural, harmonic and melodic functions, operate in a dynamic rather than a merely static way.
