Birth: 1955 Bloom: 1976
Classical crossover or neoclassic — is a music style that includes contemporary sound of musical compositions based on the sound harmony of classical music but converted by the combination of contemporary rhythms, progressive styles with classical, symphonic sound. Harmonious and balanced sound of electronic and classical instruments can expand the sound scope and create a new free form for a composition. On the other hand, the development of digital technologies allowed to create musical parts which are so complex that can`t be live performed.
The name of the style was approved few years ago when the style got into a list of nominations of Grammy, annually held by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States. Classical crossover became so popular that Billboard (an American music magazine) created a special separated chart for this style.
Umbrellate style: Instrumental
