Instructor(s): 
Course Info

Richard Strauss and Benjamin Britten will be the centerpiece composers for a semester-long study of orchestral and orchestra-choral repertory. Through informal, and occasionally more formal, analysis, students will discover essential aspect of each artist's style. The Princeton University Orchestra's spring repertory, Strauss's Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks and Britten's War Requiem, will be examined in depth, and class meetings will address relevant biographical and historical issues. Additional works by each composer, including Straass's other tone poems, will be assigned.
