The course aims at providing the students with an introduction to the history of music and, more generally, to musicology, presenting some of the various aspects in which these disciplines are articulated. The course offers a historical, cultural and social analysis of musical pieces chosen among the great masterpieces of the classical music repertoire. Listening to these pieces with comments will contribute to deepen the students’ knowledge about their historical and socio-cultural meanings. At the end of the course the student will have acquired capacity of orientation both in reading texts on music historiography and in the critical listening of music.
The course is articulated into three sections:
1) a quick approach to Musicology and in particular to History of Music:
origins and development of History of Music in Italy, France, German and Anglo-Saxon Countries
2) introduction to Melodrama, its fundamental relationship between words and music (from the Seventeenth to Nineteenth Century.
3) brief investigation on Symphonism of L. van Beethoven in the occasion of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s Birthday.
