Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 21st-century classical music is a diverse art form. Some elements of the previous century have been retained but there is a growing move towards post-modernism, polystylism and eclecticism, which seek to incorporate elements of all styles of music irrespective of whether these are "classical" or not-these efforts represent a slackening differentiation between the various musical genres. Pop, jazz, rock, and others are seen as styles to be used in any work, rather than as separate disciplines. The combination of classical music and multimedia is also a notable practice in the 21st century; the Internet, alongside its related technology, are important resources in this respect. The number of important women composers has also increased significantly.show more
