Default Is there such a thing as modern classical?

I used to have an album, one of those "pure moods" albums and I loved it. Along the lines of classical rock. Had Tubular Bells and such like on it. Would you still class it as classical music or is it pushing too far toward mainstream music???

I agree. It's a contradiction. It's not classical yet, because it's modern. that would be like if someone decided to come out with a "modern" oldies album. you know?

When people say modern classical or new classical they are usually talking about groups/artists like Bond, Vanessa Mae, Maksim et al.

What about the minimalists (Reich, Glass, Riley etc.)? Classical music with a modern aesthetic. I personally can't get enough of Arvo Part and Gorecki.

Vanessa Mae and Yngwie Malmsteen are deeply evil.
