Coming up on Tuesday, October 8th, a discussion of “Fall for Dance” and Gould pp. 137-157 will be informed by your questions and comments on the following pieces:
- Aaron Copland, What to Listen for in Music, Chapters 1-3;
- Lawrence Kramer, “Classical Music and Its Values”
- Francis Sparshott, “Aesthetics of Music—Limits and Grounds” (Part 1, pp. 33-49)
Because this is a heavy reading week, you get to decide whether to respond to these texts or those for Thursday, which will be in another post. Technically speaking, I believe groups 2 and 4 are responsible for kicking off the conversation by posting questions (in either place) this week — but if you have ideas or thoughts that you’re ready to post, don’t let the technicalities stop you!
See you in one place or the other,
