Beethoven, Berlioz, Liszt, Brahms, Mussorgsky, Mendelssohn, Debussy, Schoenberg and virtually all the other great nineteenth-century composers were inspired to write music only after exposure to some extra-musical creation. Yet it was the plight of these composers to recreate in music that which inspired them in other art forms. In this seminar, we will listen to a selection of great nineteenth-century Romantic works while also delving into the work of art that inspired each.
Eight sessions. E – $280, R – $308
