  Modern music

 Modernism (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Modernism in music is characterized by a desire for or belief in progress and science, surrealism, anti-romanticism, political advocacy, general intellectualism, and/or a breaking with tradition or common practice.
Modern music is often thought to begin with, or just after, Debussy's impressionism, rising to rhetorical, if not commercial, dominance after World War Two, and then being gradually superseded by postmodern music.
The rise of musical modernism can be tied to the rise of expressionism, primitivism and cubism in the arts, Freudian theory in philosophy and the range of other artistic and scientific ideas which flowered forth from 1890 through the beginning of the First World War.

To claim that the young modern composer has a right to be heard because he is contemporary is another matter, and it is irrelevant to attempt the simile because Mozart and Beethoven were once contemporary composers.
The music which the promoters of this festival wish to impress upon the public has as little to do with the music of the masters as futuristic pictures have with painting.

Musical instruments and objects have accumulated external memory in their physical bodies, and it remains present in their current shapes and usages’.

 Modern Music
Music without melody or harmony reminds me of Sidney Lanier's wistful experiments with poetry without meaning, in which words are used to construct successions of beautiful but meaningless sounds rather than to communicate ideas and feelings.
"Music in which the harmonic element is paramount, in which the richness and sonority of individual chords and the skilful construction of unusual progressions constitute the principal interest to the listener, is capable of great beauty, as is music in which rhythm or orchestration is thee paramount element.
As Russo said, music in which melody is not the dominant "principal" is "difficult for the listener to retain".

 'Modern Music'
Coming back to the "good" and "bad" atonal music thread, these are rather simplistic words to describe a complex thing ("good and bad", that is), but (here's where my opinion comes in) I will put forth hesitantly that the majority of modern music for band *is* pretty crappy.
I realize that not all modern music is atonal or has a very limited or unconventional tonal system.

Much of his music is for varying mixed chamber ensembles, and requires different instrumentation (or voices) for each piece.
