This course is intended to consolidate and enhance technical knowledge and expertise gained by students in their first-year courses, Text and Techniques of Music Perception. Skills relating both to the analysis of tonal music (identification of harmonies by means of Roman numerals) and to the composition of modal counterpoint (completion of species exercises) will be brought together in the context of an introduction to Schenkerian analysis. A knowledge of Heinrich Schenker's (1868¿1935) immensely influential theory and an ability to understand and deploy his complex notational system remain prerequisites for any student wishing to read recent analytical literature on tonal music. The repertoire to be discussed in the course will range from Monteverdi to Schubert, but the primary focus will be on work by Arcangelo Corelli (1653¿1713) and J.S. Bach (1685¿1750).
