Music of the 17th and 18th centuries, with focus on central developments of opera, sacred music, and instrumental genres. Through careful study of works by Monteverdi, Lully, Corelli, Handel, Rameau, and Bach, students will explore changing approaches to musical style and design, basic problems of performance practice, and how musicologists have sought to understand the place of music in cultural history.
