    Composers simply incorporated their long Romantic melodies and adventurous harmonies into the tried-and-true forms of the Classical period.
    Composers created their own brand new formal designs, paying little attention to the preceding style periods as a model.
    Composers often used Classical forms as a template, but then would dramatically change and expand the form to serve their own expressive purpose.
    Composers had tired so completely of Classical forms that they reverted to composing strictly monophonic textures in largely unpredictable patterns.
