The Classical Music of the Twenty-First Century
by Don Robertson
2000 by Don Robertson

We have entered into a new century. What will the classical music of this new twenty-first century be like? It is difficult to prognosticate, but perhaps if we look back at the history of classical music, we can better appreciate the crossroads where we now stand, and this will better enable us to guide the genre as it unfolds in new directions.

This white paper contains a history of my experience with the classical traditions of the 20th Century, my rejection of these traditions, then my subsequent discovery of what classical music was really about by studying the traditions of the past in both our culture and the cultures of the East.
