MUS 8227 - Americans in Paris, Nadia Boulanger and the American School of Musical Composition
Americans in Paris, Nadia Boulanger and the American School of Musical Composition While Gertrude Stein was creating excitement in the world of French visual art, another powerful woman, this time a French composer and teacher, was honing new American music through her Parisian studio. That extraordinary pedagogue was Nadia Boulanger, and her students led the burgeoning American school of music in the 20th century. This course will focus first on the French school of music, Boulanger's foundation, and then we will examine some of her illustrious students and their music: the likes of Aaron Copland, Elliott Carter, Quincy Jones, Virgil Thomson, and Philip Glass. We'll see how her students were influenced by Boulanger's aesthetic, and discuss how they then created a new, uniquely American sound in their work. Lenore Alford, Doctor of Musical Arts, is the Music Director of St. John's Episcopal Church in Ross. She studied organ and sacred music with Dr. Gerre Hancock, himself a student of Boulanger.
