MSC 1003 - Music in Civilization

Class 22Monday, April 26

Today we've got our last two units for the Romantic Era, including a big one on Romantic opera.

Nothing is due today, but...

There are actually no homeworks due today. That's because I assigned your Special Assignment #3 two weeks ago. Next week is one of those "pileup" days when the special assignment is due as well as some of our regular homeworks.

In my opinion, today is the day to get started on it if you haven't already.

I've got my usual support zooms scheduled this week. See the office hours page to sign up.

Assignment #48: Chopin and Liszt

First, please read our online material on these two piano composers and listen to the pieces.

Then, Assignment #48 asks you four questions.

This assignment is due on the day of Class 26 (Mon, May 10).

Assignment #49: Romantic Opera

I've got a fairly massive survey of the some of opera's greatest hits for you.

Exercise #49 asks you eight questions about all of it.

This one is also due on the day of Class 26 (Mon, May 10).
