Chapter 11 takes account of Alfred Schnittke’s posthumous reception as well as of Valentin Silvestrov’s works from the late 1980s to the present. Schnittke’s death in 1998 marked, for many, the end of an era. Yet his polystylism in both theory and practice still influences many composers in Russia today. Silvestrov has continued composing, beginning around 2000 a new style he calls the bagatelle. The chapter ends by addressing the musical and sociocultural manifestations of polystylism today in the countries of the former USSR and in the global post-Soviet diaspora. Among them are the works of Vladimir Martynov and Lera Auerbach.
