In the music of the 20th century, composers transferred folk music in their own style, classical harmony patterns emerged, the tonal understanding was left behind, the usual patterns were created and the 12-tone system emerged. Sergei Prokofiev is one of the early composers who reflected these innovations that emerged in the 20th century to his music with modern approaches. Classical Symphony, which is the first of the seven symphonies he composed, is one of the first symphonies to contain today’s rhythmic and harmonic patterns, unconventional syncope and disonances.
