Developing Your Musical Intuitions:

The Language of Classical Music

Jan: 20, 27 Feb: 3, 10, 17 March: 10, 17, 24

Faculty

Kevin Korsyn

Description

If you love classical music, you probably have a great deal of tacit knowledge about music, even if you have never played an instrument or learned to read musical notation. This course will enable you to access that knowledge by examining some of the fundamental aspects of aural experience, including memory and expectation, musical ambiguity, and feelings of tension and release. Although instructional materials will be provided for those who wish to progress further on their own, even those with no formal musical training and no knowledge of musical notation will enjoy this course. In a series of eight ninety-minute lectures, the course will use powerful and memorable musical events to generalize about musical grammar and logic, featuring works that are familiar to many classical music enthusiasts, such as Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto and Chopin’s “Revolutionary” Etude, all of them played live at the piano by the instructor, Professor Kevin Korsyn of the University of Michigan School of Music, Theater & Dance.
