Course Description:
In the Autumn semester, weekly lectures will provide the theoretical background for the practical study of tonal harmony, analytical tools and music examples aimed at familiarising students with the style of the 'age of common practice'. Weekly seminars will explore the principles of harmony and counterpoint mainly by means of pastiche composition and similar exercises, and provide a forum for both discussion of weekly assignments and for the working or re-working of examples; genres to be studied include two-part counterpoint in tonal context, figures bass realisation, and Bach chorales.
