Syllabus:

The course on Music and Ideas is offered by the Elder Conservatorium of Music in the Faculty of Arts as a Broadening Elective, suitable for a wide range of students - from all Faculties and Schools - who are curious to explore ideas associated with one of the arts and sciences of the ancient Quadrivium. The number 12 looms large in Music and the course contains 12 broad themes that will explore ideas from the ancient Greeks to the present day: Music of the Spheres, Music and Proportion, Music as Language, Music as Drama, Music and the Transcendental, Music as Song, Music as Rhythm, Music and Worship, Music and Chance, Music and Dialectics, Music with and beyond Words, Music as Art or Science? The approach taken in these exploratory lectures will be to stimulate students' thoughts about what music is, what it contains, what it represents, how it communicates, and how it acts as a medium for the transmission of ideas. The course will be taught by the Elder Professor of Music and does not require students to read musical notation.
