Title: Transatlantic Music: Europe Meets America

Code: MUS385

The aim of this course is to introduce to students American and European music of the Twentieth Century. After World War I, American composers travelled to Europe to study with the renowned “mademoiselle” Nadia Boulanger, who was placed at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau. On the other hand the political and social historical background in Europe (Soviet Regime, Nazi oppression, discovery of new audiences), led distinguished European composers to flee to America and seek temporary or permanent residence. The course will offer students a diverse selection in the form of case studies of such American and European composers, along with an in-depth analysis of selected compositions through reading material, listening and score-studying.
