Masterworks Opening Nights


Course description

Imagine sitting in the audience on opening night of a brand new piece of music. In this course, you’ll learn about the setting, music, and first performance of four masterworks. We'll consider the political, artistic, and intellectual trends of the day, framing the music as if you are part of the original audience hearing these masterworks for the first time. Tuxedos optional.

Here are the performances we will study:

  • October 29, 1787, Prague: Mozart's Don Giovanni
  • March 13, 1845, Leipzig: Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor
  • March 29, 1862, Paris: Clara Schumann Performs Robert Schumann's Carnaval
  • December 15, 1893, New York: Dvořák's Symphony No. 9 in E Minor
