Twentieth century music


Twentieth Century Music is of great variety and very difficult to categorize, a problem which arose from the breakdown of the tonal system in use during the 18th and 19th centuries. With this breakdown, there was no longer a stable foundation on which to build a "common practice" of music. New and unimagined possibilities resulted but no new stable system developed.
