MUS 225 - Beethoven

3 cr.

(Formerly MUS 325) 

Study of a composer whose fiery personality drove him to express through music universal concepts in an age of revolution, e.g., freedom and the dignity of the person.  Course traces the evolution of Beethoven’s major works – sonatas and concertos, symphonies and string quartets, as well as Fidelio and the Missa Solemnis – and the effect of his deafness on his view of life and on his later works.
