Expressionist music is a dominant form of 20th Century composition
reflecting intense subjective emotion. The philosophy behind the approach was
marked by a high degree of cohesion between beliefs of artists, writers and
musicians, who associated with one another and often worked together. Radically
individual subjects, the distortion of perspective, and political protest were
all sources of fascination for the Expressionists. To find out more about this
