Analysis Seminar - Eric Sessler
(Analysis Seminar (Srping 2018))

In this course, students will undertake an in-depth analysis of a major work from the 20th or 21st century, with a preference for a major work being performed by the Curtis Orchestra in the current academic year. Students will receive a full score for the work, which they can mark and keep at the end of the semester. Students will learn about the history and the context of the work, and do a complete, page-by-page analysis. Many students will go on to perform the work with significantly greater understanding. (Specific repertoire to be announced.)
