This course is designed to give a student thorough experience in observing harmonic, melodic and formal structure of music of the Common Practice Period with attention given to their use in Modern music and exceptions to these formal practices in that era. Special emphasis will be placed upon studying both the harmonic language of this period and the typical formal designs known as: sonata, theme and variation, rondo, A B A, and sonata-rondo. The course will cover these techniques in the works of representative composers. Additionally, the course will examine the multi-movement designs of sonatas, symphonies and chamber music. Prerequisite: MUS-203.
