Genre Question ?

Recommended Posts

Being new to composing.. I have a few questions about genres of music.. and sub-genres. I know the obvious ones.. like what a piece from the "classical" genre sounds like, or the "romantic" genre, etc. But what exactly does "neo" mean ? Like "neo-romantic" for example. Also, what exactly makes a piece be placed in these sub-genres.. Also, what makes a piece "contemporary" .. ?

Neo-Romantic just before everybody started doing his own style :P

It gets more and more complex in harmony, rhythm, colors, form, development, every single aspect of music.

 

 

EDIT:

 

Oh, "Contemporary" suppose to be what composers are writing right now... but in style, not in dates, I could write a baroque piece in year 2013 and it won't be contemporary, some composers live in a period of time but write in another, older or newer.
