Synopsis

Clients will investigate the solo literature, composed in the 20th and 21st centuries, for their particular instrument (if MMus clients). The diversity of stylistic changes within this period will serve to enhance the study, and the set works act as examples in the debate on modernism-postmodernism, tonality and neo-tonality; romantic and neo-romantic, neo-classical and modernism and modernism and minimalism.

Outcomes

On successful completion of the unit, clients should have an understanding of the changes in music that occurred over the last century and an opportunity to develop a critical idiomatic approach to stylistic analysis
