MUS534: Ends and Means: Issues in Composition

Course Info

Counterpoint has been of variable significance to composers over the centuries, sometimes taking the leading role, other times fading to irrelevance. We consider notions of counterpoint, including its familiar specific associations with Renaissance and Baroque music but also more broadly, thinking of strongly profiled elements--perhaps linear, melodic, textural or rhythmic, each establishing its own clear identities, momentum, and energy--and focus on how they might come into play in modern and contemporary music.
