Build a deeper understanding of W.A. Mozart through substantial reading, analysis, and performance of his works at your level of playing! We'll seminar on readings that establish the political, cultural and musical context in history for Mozart, using classic and recent scholarship. We'll survey his contemporaries and influences, developing aural skills for recognizing Neoclassical style markers and major works from across the period. We'll explore basic analysis techniques. We'll spend time at the piano every week, learning to play versions of Mozart's works at a comfortable level of difficulty. The goal is to practice learning about a composer, using academic resources to know the music at depth and in context.
