課程概述

There is more to music than just "beautiful play of sensations" (Kant). We'll be listening to and analyzing three major works of the European music culture: Handel's _Messiah_ of 1742 (biblical redemption), Beethoven's 9th Symphony of 1824 (humanist utopia), and Stravinsky's _Le Sacre du printemps_ of 1913 (mystic origin); we'll be also reconstructing the contexts of their genesis and deconstructing the meanings of their reception, including those of the last decades in Taipei, Hong Kong and Shanghai. Central to this enterprise is the concepts of "kairos" and "misreading." Listening in this sense is more than just music appreciation, however good it is: it is about the unending search for meaning through music in the there and then and the here and now.
「本課程為臺灣大學共同教育中心個別型通識教育改進計畫補助計畫」 

課程目標
To learn to listen with heart and mind to Western classical music and its culture, and to reflect critically – through discussion and writing - on our relationship with music old and new, native and foreign. We should become more sensitive to the sound and voice of music, its charm -- and possible harm!? 
課程要求
No musical training or score reading skill is assumed, though passion, participation and punctuality are expected. Moreover, a sharp mind (sleep more -- but before class please) and a sensitive heart (music moves) are desirable. Course materials are in English, but lecture will be mostly in Chinese. Besides the course, attendance is also required at a concert where at least one work is premiered (details TBA). An average of 2 hours per week for listening, reading and writing assignments should be expected.
