MHST 342 - Fin-de-Siècle Music in Germany and France

FC CNDP, DDHU
4 credits
Musicians living at the end of the 19th century in France and Germany proclaimed the rise of naturalism, impressionism, expressionism, symbolism, primitivism, Dadaism, and many more such movements. Why so many “isms”? This course will situate the large number of musical and artistic movements that proliferated in Germany and France at the end of the 19th century into their broader social, political, and philosophical contexts. Our studies will cover the music of Fauré, Debussy, Ravel Satie, Busoni, Reger, Richard Strauss, and Mahler.
Prerequisites & Notes: One 200-level MHST or ETHN course. ESOL 130 or testing equivalent is required of International students.
