MUSC 462 (IT) History and Literature of Art Song (1)
An examination of the development and repertoire of the art song genre (defined primarily as a work for a single voice with piano accompaniment) and of the response of composers of the German Lied, the French melody, and the English-language art song to the stimulus of a poetic text. Ability to read a piano-vocal score in musical notation is required. Reading knowledge of French and German is not required, but will be an asset to the student.
