Music Appreciation: Major and Minor Composers

In this course you will listen to, explore and enjoy a wide range of classical music from its earliest eras through to the present day by well-known and more marginal composers. In doing so you will engage with several individual works in different forms in each session thinking about the circumstances of and reasons behind their creation, and the particulars of the sonic landscape they offer through ideas such as genre, style, technique and arrangement, this will set the musical piece in context and also dive into the way the piece was constructed. To complement this we will also pay attention to the life and background of each different composer and how their approach to composition contributes to a distinctive oeuvre. You will also listen to examples of music from other genres such as jazz, film music, contemporary/neo/post-classical, ambient and electronic music.

Literature: Uncovering the World of Myth

In this 10-week, online course learners will read, explore and enjoy stories from an array of the great texts that belong to the mythic traditions of the Classical world and wider antiquity; you will consider the hold that mythology continues to have over the modern mind, thinking about how and why these works and stories still resonate today and have persisted for so long, as well as setting them against their own time and seeking to understand their original intent. In doing so we will think about genre, style and form, as well as considering authorship and culture through appraising the backgrounds and context of each text, and particular writers, whilst also looking into more modern art and culture that has been influenced by and reworked these myths, this will add crucial context but also dive into the modern reading of the texts and myths. All texts will be read in English translation in a supportive atmosphere and with a knowledgeable tutor
