The XX century had been particularly rich for music. In these 100 years, more things happened in the musical universe than ever before. No other century may be compared in terms of styles, fractures, reconsiderations. New genres, new shapes, new technologies, new ways of thinking of music, made this period rich in musical miracles.
Federico Capitoni composed a “canon” of 100 works of ‘900s art music, a guide to find your way through the thousands of masterpieces and extraordinary works that outlined this musical era.
