M-LT 71151 - Forms
For musicians, understanding the role of form often stops at labeling movements: Sonata, Rondo, and Binary for example. Obviously these labels are “correct” but what can a Sonata do that a rondo can’t? Resources used in this course will be drawn from concert and vernacular music, and from exploring the role of form in media beyond music. Meaningful insights into perception and importance, material determining structure, and function as a factor in aesthetics will be gained. Successful works of art, music, poetry and architecture have commonalities concerning forms that can provide insight into the great composers’ use of forms to: suggest, manipulate, relate, or frustrate.
