Overview

Bright Sheng guides us through three works — by Brahms, Beethoven, and Sheng — for an intimate look inside the composer’s mind. This course strives to give students a new appreciation of music, based on an understanding of the craft behind each work. This class is perfect for those wanting to gain a unique perspective on the creative process of music composition, while challenging traditional notions of how composers approach formal structure, melody, and harmony.
