Good call on Toby.

I'd call bands like godspeed you! black emperor, kayo dot, battles, as close as you will get to "modern classical"

Technically classical music is music from a certain time period of music with Mozart being the most well known composer today from that time period. Bach, Beethoven (borderline classical/romantic), Debussy, Chopin etc...are not technically classical composers, they are Baroque and Romantic.

However with so many different types of music, somewhere down the line when you go to you local music store all the "classical" composers are clumped together. Imagine separating them by Romantic, Baroque, Classical, Modern.

Now modern music, or modern "classical" is anywhere from the early 20th century till today. This period has the advent of atonality, and also a lot of experimental music. Experimental in its rhythm changes, tonality, or lack of....and there is also the beginning of electronic music, experimenting with noise effects etc....

Good modern music to check out Shoenberg, Shnitke, Milton Babbit, Holst "The Planets", Tokyo 77 (new experimental music)....

Or you could be thinking of Contemporary muci, which is uses the same instruments as classical (strings, woodwind, etc.) but has changed to more abstract, akin to the way art has changed.

Well, it depends. I mean modern pop is technically an evolution of classic pop, such as the beatles, isn't it? So technically you can have "modern" Classical music, which is an evolution of the old genre.

classical music is concert music from a certain era.."modern classical" as you put it would simply be "modern concert music"

calling something modern classical is a contradiction in terms.

I never said it was called modern classical, as far as I'm aware it's called "contemporary". I was just saying that the idea behind it was perfectly viable, and does exist, which was what the original question was.
