At some point, all music is new. Bach was new in his day as was Beethoven. However, their “new” seems old and traditional to us. Throughout the 20th Century, classical music took a different turn; composers began writing atonal music and began using nontraditional instruments, such as wine glasses and radios. American-Israeli composer and performer, Yehuda Yannay, was well into his career in the late 20th Century, making him a contemporary of John Cage and Phillip Glass.
