  • 1. Introduction

    Listening to Music (MUSI 112) Professor Wright introduces the course by suggesting that "listening to music" is not simply a passive activity one can use to relax, but rather, an active and rewarding process. He argues that by learning about the basic elements of Western classical music, such as rhythm, melody, and form, one learns strategies that can be used to understand many different kinds of music in a more thorough and precise way -- and further, one begins to understand the magnitude of human greatness. Professor Wright draws the music examples in this lecture from recordings of techno music, American musical theater, and works by Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy and Strauss, in order to introduce the issues that the course will explore in more depth throughout the semester. 00:00 - Cha...

Christopher Page introduces his upcoming series of free public lectures as Gresham Professor of Music: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/men-women-and-guitars-in-romantic-england The guitar is arguably the most widely cultivated instrument in the world. At a time when fifty or more pianos are broken up for scrap in Britain every week – sad relics of Victorian parlour entertainment – sales of guitars have never been higher. Nonetheless, it has been almost universally forgotten that there was an intense guitar craze in England between about 1800 and 1835, spanning the lifetimes of Keats, Byron, Shelley and Coleridge, and a craze whose history has never been traced. Histories of English music and society in the nineteenth century continue to be written as if it never happened, and yet the instrument was cultivated from the royal family in the person of Princess Charlotte (d. 1817) down to the poorest laundress. This is much more than the story of an instrument and its music: the rise of romanticism, the creation of an urban poor hungry for self-improvement, the proliferation of newspapers, serialised fiction and printed sheet music, the social position of women and other aspects of English society and culture in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars all have a place within it. Christopher Page is the Gresham Professor of Music. Information on his ongoing series of free public lectures is available here: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/men-women-and-guitars-in-romantic-england More information on Professor Christopher Page can be found here: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/professors-and-speakers/professor-christopher-page Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

Listening to Music (MUSI 112) A brief foray into the formal characteristics of contemporary popular music is used to launch this lecture on musical form. After a discussion of the "verse-chorus" form often used in popular music, Professor Wright proceeds to take students into the realm of classical music, focusing particularly on ternary form and sonata-allegro form. Throughout his detailed explanation of sonata-allegro form, he also elaborates upon some harmonic concepts describing, for example, the relationship between relative major and minor keys. This lecture draws its musical examples from 'N Sync, Mozart, and Beethoven. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Verse-Chorus Form in Popular Music 05:56 - Chapter 2.
