Contemporary classical music can be understood as belonging to the period that started in the mid-1900s to this day with the retreat of modernism. However, the term may also be employed in a broader sense to refer to all modern musical forms. Listen to some on this station. At the turn to the 20th century classical music was characteristically late Romantic in style, while at the same time the Impressionist movement, spearheaded by Claude Debussy was taking form. America began forming its own vernacular style of classical music, notably in the works of Charles Ives, John Alden Carpenter, and (later) George Gershwin, while in Vienna, Arnold Schoenberg conceived atonality, and later developed the twelve-tone technique. These and others form the core of our frequently changing playlist.
