MUSIC 39N: The Classical String Quartet: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven & Schubert

This seminar, an in-depth historical survey of canonic works from the string quartet repertory, is intended for performers and non-performers alike. Topics to be explored include the origins of the genre in the pre-classical period; the establishment of enduring conventions in the early quartets of Haydn; aesthetic criteria that distinguish the approaches of Haydn and Mozart; the epoch-defining shifts in musical composition that are reflected in Beethoven¿s works for the medium; the tension between classicism and romanticism in the chamber music of Schubert; and issues of historical performance practice. Field trips will include a visit to the Beethoven Center in San Jose and attending chamber music concerts on campus. The St. Lawrence String Quartet (Stanford¿s ensemble-in-residence) will be joining the seminar on a regular basis to provide live demonstrations and coaching. Students who are string players are strongly encouraged to bring their instruments to class. Class activities will cover history, criticism, analysis, and performance (usually in combination). Informed listening is a primary goal of the seminar. Assignments will be tailored to student interests and abilities.
