How did audiences respond to the tendency toward intellectualization and radical experimentation evident in the work of many composers following World War II?

    Most embraced this new style of artistic expression as the most accurate reflection of the period and the social milieu in which they lived.
    After realizing the means by which composers were creating music of this period, many individuals without any previous musical training began composing their own experimental music.
    Many turned away from classical music altogether.
    Many listeners began to insist that this musical style be incorporated more into their everyday life as a part of popular radio programming, sacred music, dance halls, etc.
