History[ edit ] At the turn of the century, music was characteristically late Romantic in style. At the same time, the Impressionist movement, spearheaded by Claude Debussywas being developed in France.
Debussy in fact loathed the term Impressionism: Maurice Ravel 's music, also often labelled as impressionist, explores music in many styles not always related to it see the discussion on Neoclassicism, below.
Arnold Schoenberg, Los Angeles, Many composers reacted to the Post-Romantic and Impressionist styles and moved in quite different directions.
The single most important moment in defining the course of music throughout the century was the widespread break with traditional tonality, effected in diverse ways by different composers in the first decade of the century.
From this sprang an unprecedented "linguistic plurality" of styles, techniques, and expression Morgan In ViennaArnold Schoenberg developed atonalityout of the expressionism that arose in the early part of the 20th century. He later developed the twelve-tone technique which was developed further by Piano d.h.

This type of music thus became labelled neoclassicism. Mathis der Maler all produced neoclassical works. This style often tried to recreate everyday sounds and place them in a "Futurist" context. The term electroacoustic music was later coined to include all forms of music involving magnetic tapecomputerssynthesizersmultimediaand other electronic devices and techniques.
Live electronic music uses live electronic sounds within a performance as opposed to preprocessed sounds that are overdubbed during a performanceCage's Cartridge Music being an early example. From the early s onwards, Cage introduced elements of chance into his music.
The term is also used to describe music within specific genres that pushes against their boundaries or definitions, or else whose approach is a hybrid of disparate styles, or incorporates unorthodox, new, distinctly unique ingredients. Important cultural trends often informed music of this period, romantic, modernist, neoclassical, postmodernist or otherwise.
Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Prokofiev were particularly drawn to primitivism in their early careers, as explored in works such as The Rite of Spring and Chout. Other composers, such as Benjamin Britten War Requiemexplored political themes in their works, albeit entirely at their own volition Evans Nationalism was also an important means of expression in the early part of the century.
The culture of the United States of America, especially, began informing an American vernacular style of classical music, notably in the works of Charles IvesJohn Alden Carpenterand later George Gershwin.
In the latter quarter of the century, eclecticism and polystylism became important. These, as well as minimalismNew Complexityand New Simplicityare more fully explored in their respective articles.
In the 20th century, the different styles that emerged from the music of the previous century influenced composers to follow new trends, sometimes as a reaction to that music, sometimes as an extension of it, and both trends co-existed well into the 20th century.The Complete Poems of D.
