hundreds of years of crap that is.

and i thought finding good electronic music was hard.

and yet its called "classical"

it should have been called "original" music

how about more solo pianist and string quartet stuff? the orchestral stuff is a bit too your face for my tastes

there has been a sort of "new" generation of absolutely mesmerizing composers around, often combining electronics with classical sounds.

some of my all time favs are:

max richter - the blue notebooks
peter broderick - float
jacaszek - treny
sylvain chaveau - nuage
joanna newsom - ys


as for the old school, definitely missing:

erik satie
chopin

Joanna Newsom is amazing...actually thats pretty much what got me asking. I had heard her years ago, but i recently remembered her and have been listening to it like non stop.

ZOMG!!!! 8O 8O 8O 8O

Upon listening to the Gorecki Symphony no.3, per your recommendations, I realized the first movement sounded oddly familiar. Hybrid's "Wide Angle" album lifted motifs from Gorecki! I can't remember which track, but it's in there....

I've had this happen before with Hybrid's "Wide Angle" album: They also lifted bits from "Ase's Death", from Greig's Peer Gynt.

oblique strategies wrote:You'll find all these dark & scary items on the soundtrack to 'The Exorcist':
Hans Werner Henze - Fantasia For Strings
Anton Webern - Five Pieces For Orchestra, Op 10
Krzysztof Penderecki - Polymorphia; String Quartet (1960)

And these on 'The Shining' soundtrack:
Gyorgy Ligeti - Lontano
Bela Bartok - Music For Strings, Percussion & Celesta
Krzysztof Penderecki - Utrenja (Excerpt); The Awakening of Jacob; De Natura Sonoris #1; De Natura Sonoris #2; Polymorphia

Be afraid, be very afraid...

If you like opera then Benjamin Britten's 'Peter Grimes' is a remarkable piece of work, sort of like the classical/opera version of Nine Inch Nails 'The Downward Spiral'. Astonishing music!
Sounds great,,,,
You can try

Taverner and Tallis, The Western Wynde Mass. Brilliant choral piece from the middle ages...I think around the time of Chaucer but don't quote me on that.

If you want dark, just listen to Requiems by different composers.

Or get lots of Ligeti
