Course Description

From its humble origins as operatic introductory music or as a collection of dance movements, the symphony came to dominate orchestral composition from the late eighteenth century almost up to the present day. This term, we will trace the development of the symphony from the mid nineteenth century to the twentieth century. No specialist knowledge is needed for full participation - just an interest in listening to music and finding out more about it

Half term 14th - 18th February
