Music: Das Land Ohne Musik

Class Details

In 1904, the German music critic Oscar Schmitz claimed that Great Britain was “Das Land ohne Musik” (the land without music).  So, I thought that this would be a good opportunity to look at classical music in this land from an historic perspective. In this course, I shall concentrate on England and then broaden out to include other parts of the UK.  All musical genres shall be included; from vocal, instrumental, chamber, orchestral, choral and opera. No technical knowledge is necessary.
