- Course objectives
- Music has played a uniquely central role in the history of the Czech lands, and this course is designed to explain why this is so by following the development of music here since the Middle Ages. It begins with a survey of Czech history aimed at analysing the broad social and cultural changes affecting Bohemia and Moravia over the centuries. It goes on to deal with the country’s unusually rich folk music tradition, which has been of great importance in the development of its musical life and has had a profound influence on many of its leading composers. The history of music from the Middle Ages on then follows, with the emphasis on the many links between musical life and musicians here and the rest of Central Europe, the role of national feeling in the development of the musical tradition, and the place of ethnic and other minorities.
