Neotonalism is a manner of musical composition spreading througout all styles, from early music just to the contemporary age. It uses a wide pallete of possibilities where, both atonalysm (typìcal of nowadays) and tonality (traditional style) can fade in the same score. Each composer choses the most appropriate way for their works so that neotonal movement houses a huge variety of styles can take place: from the most classical up to the avant-garde sounds.
No limits are found. You can hear a classical orchestra and electroacoustics as well, Middle Ages together with impressionism or romanticism. Tonality is not forbidden, neither is twelve-note system.
