Links

An Important Note: There are more webpages on the internet than any one person can reasonably digest. Therefore, to make your surfing (and learning) a little more efficient, we have collected a handful of links for each of the five works in this course. Many pages will offer links to contextual information, sound files, related works, for-profit sites, other performances, and different analyses. The compilation of websites is by no means complete, and we do not in any way endorse or even necessarily agree with the contents of these pages. We encourage you to be critical in your extracurricular learning and keep in mind that this course has a particular focus: the first performances of five great pieces of music.
