research overview

  • Dr. Chang completed several years of research on the problem of rhythm and meter in the unmeasured harpsichord preludes of Louis Couperin. He has begun to explore in the expression of tonality in mid-20th century American art music and pre-Baroque keyboard music, and various aspects of contemporary pop and rock music. Of particular interest is the relationship of text and music, ranging from 19th-century German Lieder to contemporary pop and rock music.
