In this 10-week virtual course, students will become familiar with the basic timeline of Russian music, including government reforms and restrictions, major trends and musical characteristics, as well as the works of influential composers.

This distinctive musical tradition has captivated audiences with its haunting harmonies and dissonances, lush thematic material, evocative narratives based on ancient Russian lore, and raw emotive power. The Romantic era epitomizes the height of Russian creativity within the realm of classical music, particularly through piano music, symphonies, and opera.
