"Masterpieces of Western Music"
("Music Humanities" Core Curriculum Course)
This course is offered every semester in multiple sections and at various times and locations.  Please see the table below for available sections and current enrollments.  Sections are capped at 25 students.

Masterpieces of Western Music is the Department's flagship course, our contribution to Columbia's esteemed Core Curriculum, and required of every student in Columbia College.  More information on Music Humanities (and a list of online resources) can be found here.

Description: Part of the Core Curriculum since 1947, "Music Humanities'' aims to instill in students a basic comprehension of the many forms of the Western musical imagination. Its specific goals are to awaken and encourage in students an appreciation of music in the Western world, to help them learn to respond intelligently to a variety of musical idioms, and to engage them in the issues of various debates about the character and purposes of music that have occupied composers and musical thinkers since ancient times. The course attempts to involve students actively in the process of critical listening, both in the classroom and in concerts that the students attend and write about. The extraordinary richness of musical life in New York is thus an integral part of the course. Although not a history of Western music, the course is taught in a chronological format and includes masterpieces by Josquin des Prez, Monteverdi, Bach, Handel, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Verdi, Wagner, Schoenberg, and Stravinsky among others. Since 2004, the works of jazz composers and improvisers, such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Charlie Parker, have been added to the list of masterpieces to be studied in this class. Music Humanities digital resources can be viewed at http://www.columbia.edu/itc/music.

Registration Procedure: All information concerning registration in HUMA W1123 is included in the registration materials sent to students. It is the expectation of the College that all students complete Music Humanities by the end of their third year.
