Course Description

ONLINE: The soundtrack of American and European classical music continues to swing like a pendulum between two poles: simplicity and complexity. The intricate musical mathematics of Bach’s Baroque era was followed by the cerebral simplicity and balance of Haydn’s classicism, quickly moving forward to Beethoven’s wild, expressive romanticism. How do simplicity or complexity influence the way we communicate, dress and live? In class, our audible examination of classical music’s perpetual swing between these two poles will be enhanced by viewing architecture, fashion and art. Let’s travel classical music history’s winding road, stopping to see the sights along the way. | Lecture + Q&A.

Max enrollment: 55.
