This is the period that saw the birth of opera, as well as the rise of purely instrumental forms such as the concerto and sonata; it is also the period in which modern-day harmony (major and minor keys, modulation, etc.) was developed.
The term "Romanticism" was first applied to trends in literature in the late 18th century, as an idealized revival of the Medieval "romance," and soon spread to its sister arts, painting and music.
In music history, the term generally refers to the period between Beethoven’s maturity and the rise of the modernist trends of the early 20th century.

 20th/21st Century - Classical - Music - www.real.com
Twentieth century music can be divided into two large, overarching cycles: the pre-World War II dismantling of past musical structures, and the rapid succession of post-war movements building new musical forms and languages.
Perhaps the greatest and most influential development of the first cycle is the innovation of atonality by Arnold Schoenberg and the "Second Viennese School." After 1950, the Avant Garde tested the tolerance of all but a small group of listeners.
While art music remains more diverse than before the 1900s, classical works of the twenty-first century have thus far been marked by a return to strong tonality and emotional expressiveness, in a deliberate attempt to reach much larger audiences than the more insular, academic, and dissonant music of last century's Avant Garde.
