About this course:

An overview of Russian classical music, from its origins in the mid-eighteenth century through the present day. Besides familiarizing North American audience with the shared Western European traditions and specificities of Russian musical culture, this course goes beyond the foundational conception of what Russian culture is through the study of classical music. We additionally consider critical texts by Russian authors on topics of nationalism, politics of identity, and pedagogy and aesthetics as a way of gaining some understanding of the cultural values and worldviews of Russians. More specifically, the course covers lives and works of Michail Glinka, Aleksandr Dargomyzhsky, Mily Balakirev, Aleksandr Borodin, Modest Mussorgsky, Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov, Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky, Sergey Taneyev, Alexander Scriabin, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Nikolai Miaskovsky, Igor Stravinsky, Sergei Prokofiev, Dmitry Shostakovich, Sofia Gubaidulina, Edison Denisov, Igor Kefalidis, and others.
