MUS 1000 - Music Appreciation
SE 3
4
not applicable
annually
English

Offered each semester. An appreciation and analysis from the viewpoint of the listener of representative works in Western art tradition, covering for example, selected masterworks of Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Bartok, and Stravinsky. No previous knowledge of or about music is required.

For any professional musician or avid fan, music is a world of breadth and depth. In this Innsbruck version of the standard Stateside music appreciation course, we will explore both the depth and the breadth. We’ll use the music of today to talk about the basic “elements” of music: melody, rhythm, harmony, dynamics, and the uses of voices and instruments. You will learn how these elements help evoke emotions in the listener. These same elements will help us to discuss emotion, meanings, and originality in the music of the past. Topics for this summer: The Rise of the 18th-century Superstar Performer; Musical Comedy in Mozart and Haydn; Austria and the Symphony; The Music of Romantic Love Songs; the Un-Classical Music of the 20th Century. No musical background is required but you will need access to a playback device and YouTube. Field trips: an outdoor concert in Innsbruck and an afternoon trip to Salzburg.

The University of New Orleans International Summer School program has a mandatory class attendance policy. All students are required to attend class for all morning classes and any required afternoon and/or weekend fields trips and lectures. No unexcused absences are allowed. However, LFU students who have to miss a UNO class due to LFU examinations in the first two weeks of our program, can receive one excused absence for this. Any further unexcused absences will result in an academic penalty. Each faculty member determines the penalty for missed classes. Most professors deduct a letter grade for each additional missed class day. For details, please refer to your course syllabi, which will be distributed on the first day of class.
