Music Courses

The A-Z of Musical Forms

During this course we concentrate on some of the most important forms in music. In each class we discuss and listen to examples of a particular musical form, ranging from Gregorian chant to the madrigal, the motet, the sonata, the concerto, the symphony, binary & ternary forms, the cantata, the opera seria and the opera buffa.
