Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
This course focuses upon selected works of Gustav Mahler: early piano Lieder, the song cycle Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, and the first four symphonies. These compositions are subjected to close analytical scrutiny. Students will learn how to come to grips with the complex tonal and formal issues underlying these works. Particular attention will be given to Mahler’s use of rotational form, teleological genesis, fantasy projection, and structural deformations such as the breakthrough and the off-tonic sonata.
