During the spring of 2009, a typical session of 21M.304 was recorded especially for OpenCourseWare. In the first part of the session, three students present their analysis of a short piano work, followed by class discussion. The last segment of class is a workshop format where students present their own compositions and receive feedback. Many of the work-in-progress scores can be found in the Assignments section.
The following materials are used for reference in the lecture:
Michel Beroff, piano; Gewandhaus Orchester Leipzig; Kurt Masur, conductor. Prokofiev: The Five Piano Concertos; Overture on Hebrew Themes., Visions Fugitives and Other Short Works for Piano. EMI Classics, 1992.
Topics covered: Prokofiev's Visions Fugitives, student presentations and composition workshop.
Instructor: Charles Shadle
