For fans of classical music from the 20th century, that exciting age full innovative composers, from Gustav Mahler and Claude Debussy to Karlheinz Stockhausen and Steve Reich.

Welcome to "20th Century Classical" Group!

20th Century Classical music begins with the late Romantic style of Sergei Rachmaninoff, the impressionism of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel, American Vernacular music of Charles Ives and George Gershwin, and continues through the Neoclassicism of middle-period Igor Stravinsky and le groupe des six, and the twelve-tone music of Arnold Schönberg, Alban Berg, and Anton Webern. It ranges to such distant sound-worlds as the total serialism of Pierre Boulez, the simple harmonies and rhythms of minimalist composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass, the musique concrète of Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry, the microtonal music written by Easley Blackwood, Alois Hába, Ben Johnston, Harry Partch, and others, the aleatoric music of John Cage, the intuitive music of Karlheinz Stockhausen, and the polystylism of Alfred Schnittke.
