In this subject, we explore representative styles of Western art music from 1900 to the present. The music will be examined from a number of perspectives including nationalist and internationalist currents, modernist tendencies and the quest for order and disorder, and with reference to wider socio-cultural contexts. The music of Australia will also be studied in relation to corresponding global trends.
