Amcanion cyffredinol

This module introduces students to musicological study through a survey of music history between 1850 and the present day, combined with a series of workshops on study skills.

The module surveys selected works in a range of art music and popular genres. Changes and developments in musical style will be set in their historical, cultural, social, geographical and aesthetic contexts. In addition, students undertake a deeper study of two works, exploring them analytically as musical texts, and probing the circumstances in which they were composed.
