M-LT 71327 - Darmstadt
The city of Darmstadt has been a major epicenter for modern music, primarily due to the International Summer Courses for New Music that began in 1946 and continued forward to the present day. This fourteen-week seminar will both investigate and challenge the various identities of the so-called “Darmstadt School” (Pierre Boulez, Bruno Maderna, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and Luigi Nono) by examining a broader spectrum of composers, lectures, and music that was part of the summer courses both before and after the dissolution of the Darmstadt School. In addition to composers such as John Cage, Hans Werner Henze, and György Ligeti, the seminar will highlight the work of more recent composers such as Brian Ferneyhough, Kaija Saariaho, Jennifer Walshe and Chaya Czernowin. Students will conduct independent research projects on Darmstadt-related composers of their choosing.
