In this course the lecturer will discuss music as one of the phases of artistic and human expression; i.e., not so much music itself as an independent art, as music in its relation to other arts and to human life. Just as neither painting, sculpture nor literature can be discussed divorced from life in its totality-since they are expressions of life--so it is with music. Beethoven's symphonies do not stand |
