Title: Music in the Twentieth-Century

Code: MUS320

This course concentrates in the musical tradition of the Twentieth Century and its musicological and theoretical background. The explosive changes of the last hundred years have created one of the most tumultuous but exciting periods of music. More specifically, it will examine issues that twentieth-century composers faced and the strategies they adopted to solve them during a period of enormous cultural and musical change. It will consider and analyse specific techniques and constructive principles used by composers, as well as the aesthetic positions and formal types allied with particular approaches, with an emphasis on the critical analysis of pioneering works representative of different composers and diverse musical currents of the century through readings, listening and score-studying.
