Hellsing can only go so far
Anyone know thier classical ?
Bethoven has some pretty good stuff. I love his 9th's IIRC. It's at the beginning of fantasia, and is quite dark.
I also have a copy of a 5 CD set called 101 clasics. If you can find disk #2 it's da balls. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
I know the music, but don't have a clue about the titles. I listen to lots of different classical on my commute. From Tchaikovski to that guy that's still writing them... Maybe I'll dig through and send you the titles or mp3's of some of the darker stuff.
My daughter loves Festival Overture "1812". Me too, actually, it's like motivational music.
I'm not sure I know what you mean by "dark", but here's a few.
Richard Wagner, Carl Maria von Weber, George Handel, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach and Von Suppe.
If by dark you mean brooding and shadowy, go with Weber, Wagner and Beethoven.
Handel, Strauss, Bach and Mozart were more wistful, but all are brilliant. Food for the soul and brain.
Rachmaninoff is well know for his brooding and manic style. Musorgsky(sp?) wrote a few creepy songs- one you might recognize is from "Fantasia"(Mountain something or other). It's VERY dark and somewhat epic...... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
If you're into the violin, check out Paganini. He was so "out there" for his time that people claimed the Devil helped him write his music.
Hope that helped.
I can't believe no one has mentioned Orff's Carmina Burana.
For good orchestral choir music check stuff conducted by Robert Shaw.
Thanks everyone, keep it coming for reference
Especially thanks for Carmina Burana, I remember it from an introduction to a gunfight....... it's the type I am looking for
Specific tracks would be nice if possible
Thanks again, I appreciate it
Fantasia is an awesome movie to listen too, I couldn't pay attention in a movie theatre. There are plenty of dark songs on it.
