The Early 20 th Century The diverse artistic trends of the early twentieth century were a reaction against Romanticism. Early-twentieth-century artistic trends explored simplicity and abstraction (non-Western arts, Dadaism, Cubism) and the world of dreams and the inner soul (Surrealism, Expressionism). New conceptions of harmony (polychords, polytonality, atonality) pressed music beyond the traditional systems of tonality. The twelve-tone method (or serialism), devised by Arnold Schoenberg, was an important and influential compositional technique.

Just as painters of the early twentieth century abandoned representational images for abstraction, many composers of the same period abandoned the familiar harmonies of the tonal system for new combinations of tones.
