This is roughly how I feel as well. I'd identify it as a period, though, around 1900. Throw in Ravel and Mussorgsky, Copeland and early Stravinsky.

I also feel like there's a similar sweet spot for Jazz in the early 1960s.

However, I suspect this conviction has more to do with personal taste than with absolute realities.
