Modernist music

Modernist music is known for novel experimentation with musical elements such as pitch, melody, rhythm, dynamics, timbre, form, etc., often creating music that was difficult to listen to or unappealing to the average listener. However, modernist music also began incorporating more popular musical styles from jazz, blues, and folk, as well using traditional forms (sonata, rondo) in a “neo-classical” style.
