Handel as examples of the diversity, cosmopolitanism, expression, formal and technical features, and social uses of music in the first half of eighteenth century. Traces Handel¿s career from his native Germany to an elite Roman circle of musical connoisseurs, and to the Italian opera company he founded in London and his transformation of Italian opera into a new genre of English oratorio.

MUSIC 146M: New Keywords in African Sound (AFRICAAM 146D, AFRICAST 146M, CSRE 146D, MUSIC 246M)

This course identifies and considers new keywords for the study of contemporary African music and sound. Each week we will foster discussion around a keyword and a constellation of case studies. The sonic practices we will encounter range from South African house music to Ghanaian honk horns; from Congolese rumba bands to Tunisian trance singers; from listening to the radio in a Tanzanian homestead to making hip hop music videos on the Kenyan coast. By exploring the unexpected interconnections between contemporary African musical communities, we will discuss new keywords arising in current scholarship, including technologies like the amplifier and the hard drive, spaces like the studio and the city, and analytics like pleasure and hotness. We will also engage with established concepts for the study of postcolonial African cultures, including nationalism, cosmopolitanism, globalization, diaspora, and Pan-Africanism. This is a seminar-based course open to graduate students, upper level undergraduate students, and other students with consent of the instructor. Proficiency in music is not required.

MUSIC 149J: Music, Interpretation, Meaning (MUSIC 249J)

This course is an inquiry into music, interpretation, and meaning. These are obviously inexhaustibly rich and complex topics; to bring our inquiry into focus, we will conduct it principally through engagement with a selection of works from the late Classical through the Modern eras that we judge invite and endure exacting attention. To deepen our encounters and our thinking, we will also study texts ranging from aphorisms to poems to philosophical and musicological essays. Students will participate through both discussion and short write responses to the topics, and will write an analytical paper, summarizing their findings as well in class. Pre-/corequisite (for music majors): MUSIC 22. (Meets Music's WIM requirement.)
