MUSI-1106B XIX Century Music

European music of the XIX century is marked by very strong and contrasting esthetic currents. Its representatives struggled to validate the current they joined and their confrontations where not without belligerency. The advent of criticism, subjectivity, the contrast between demand and the public’s taste with regard to works and creators marked a contradiction which affected musical production and the lives of artists. This course will study the musical repertoires of the nineteenth century from the viewpoint of their creators, esthetic thought and its relations with other expressions, especially with literature.
