Description: SECTION 1: This course focuses on chromatic harmony as it was developed during the long 19th century. The first half of the course deals with chromaticism as a supplement to diatonicism, the second half with chromatic space on its own terms. SECTION 2: A hands-on consideration of improvised or quasi-extemporized elements in 18th century repertoire. Coursework will focus equally on analysis (examining extant musical examples and treatises from the period) and practical application (composing examples and making realizations). Repeatable for Credit.
