Even at the beginning of the new millennium, the words twentieth-century music often inspire apprehension in audiences. While composers like Debussy, Vaughan Williams and Stravinsky have become concert-hall favourites, others such as Schoenberg, Boulez and Takemitsu are too often regarded as strange and unapproachable. Discover Classical Music of the 20th Century is a comprehensive and easily digestible guide, leading us through the diverse, innovative and controversial musical history of this era. By describing the many different musical styles that flourished in the twentieth century and putting the music in its historical and social context, this ebook demystifies the whole subject of modern music.
