M-LT 71341 - Water Music: Composing Sounds of Sea
Many of us wonder at the beauty, magnitude, motion, and mystery contained in the large bodies of water that cover our planet. Composers have been inspired by the sea for centuries. In this course we will investigate how composers musically bridge the multiple chasms between humanity and the world of water, exploring form, content, and intent in both orchestral and vocal pieces by Mendelssohn, Wagner, Rimsky-Korsakov, Debussy, Ravel, Sibelius, the British Pastoralists and Britten, Crumb, Takemitsu, Xenakis, Whitacre, Holland, and even Herbie Hancock - among a few surprising others.
