Quest Courses – Spring 2023 / Art and Music / CLASSICAL MUSIC
Coordinators: Sol Makon, Bob Reiss
Classical music’s evolution has been consistently linked to the social and political environment that existed at the time.
In this course we examine different facets of classical music, including the development of different genres and styles, and the composers who systematically embraced the music’s potential.
Members’ presentations will provide the framework for gaining valuable insights into, and further appreciation of, classical music.
