Modernism - Level 6
In this course students will develop an understanding of the stylistic diversity that emerged in the revolutionary time of Modernism, at the beginning of the 20th century, and will explore the incorporation of the 'new' into the traditional continuum in music and other forms of cultural expression. The heterogeneous reactions that resulted to a plurality of musical and aesthetic construction will be captured through selected works and scores and will be discussed in relation to independent texts, literature and visual arts of the time.
