ART MUSIC

MUSIC INDUSTRAPEDIA ENCYCLOPEDIA - CONCEPT / THING: MUSIC GENRE


Art Music is an umbrella term and concept that has been coined to replace Classical Music to describe all the music (orchestral music, chamber music, etc) that the average lay person would consider to be Classical Music and which most record companies use as the marketing term to describe as a music genre label. The need for the term Art Music asa replacement to Classical Music arose out of academic considerations that the real period in music for Classical Music that is said to be between 1550 and 1900, does not include music of the 20th and 21st century nor for earlier music such as medieval and renaissance music.

MUSIC INDUSTRAPEDIA VIEW ON ART MUSIC
We (the Industrapedia Music Council are willing to entertain the idea of the concept of Art Music and give it some space as a dual classification label along with Classical Music on our site, but we still plan to use to term 'Classical Music' as the main term to cover this genre because most people in the world would be more familiar with the 'Classical Music' term to describe orchestral music, chamber music or complex orchestrated western music from the middle ages until now.
