Learning outcomes of the course unit

The course aim is a comprehensive view of a music text in connection with knowledge aquired in the first study-year (Composition Analysis 1 & 2:108RS1 and 2). Comprehension of music material from vertical and horizontal viewpoints, in detail and as a whole. The relationship of music content to the music stylization used. Connecting a text set to music using music material. In a stage work, the relationship of stage events to the music material used. Linking other types of art and philosophy.

The study aims are:

  3. Learning new era analysis procedures appropriate for learning the works of the 20th and 21st centuries.
