The course organically combines knowledge about the development of music in historical and form context. It is therefore aimed at acquiring knowledge about the development, patterns and features of the form building, about the representation of forms in specific musical works; is also focused on practical mastery of basic building mechanisms of small forms in vocal and instrumental form, both in the verification task of theoretical knowledge and in didactic preparation. The presentation of forms is realized in connection with the development of music in the context of art-historical and generally historical.
