A composition seminar in which students work on style-specific compositions from a number of historical periods. Through the 15-week semester students will study and write a fugue, a 19th-century lied (with text), a twelve-tone composition, a composition in the style of Wayne Shorter, and a "minimalist" composition. Representative pieces in each style will be examined closely, as will the compositional techniques, strategies, and syntax that each involves. Since this is a writing-specific course, students will be encouraged to compose for their own ensembles, although there will be opportunities to get some works played in class.
