Musical styles approached by Serbian composers in the first half of the 20th century
Keywords:Rukoveti, Mokranjac, 20th century
The musical creation of Serbian composers is not well known in the European area, primarily due to censorship in the first half of the 20th century when music influenced by European orientations was considered capitalist and was banned on the one hand, and on the other hand due to the fact that most of the works are written in Cyrillic and thus did not reach the European research circuit. It should be mentioned that the course of development of music history in Europe, with its periodization into stages of Baroque, Classicism, Romanticism, Impressionism, Expressionism, Neoclassicism, Avant-garde, and Postmodernism, was not applied to music in Serbia. However, all these styles will be found in the musical creations of Serbian composers in the period from the end of the 19th century and during the 20th century.
