The lectures in “History of Music”, separated in four parts, are going beyond a mere factual knowledge and want to develop the students’ awareness of special problems concerning music history. Events, phenomena and tendencies will be seen in the context of a historical development, determined by the aesthetics of its time, special circumstances and technical facilities. The history of styles, interpretation and reception form a basis of mediation and preservation to be especially considered. Music history 2 will deal with music in Renaissance and Baroque Era.
