It became a habit to equate a strict and laconic music to the classics, which differs significantly from the widespread hip-hop or pop direction.

Another question is whether modern composers can be called authors of classical music. Classical music is all about compositions that have passed the test of time. However, in our time a huge number of composers live and create amazing compositions , working on the creation of modern classical music of the twenty-first century.
