"O learn the Law, my brothers of the night - the Great Law and the Lesser Law.
The Great Law brings the balance and doth persist without mercy.
The Lesser Law abideth as the key, and the Shining Trapezoid is the door!"  Anton LaVey

A funeral march or dirge "Funerailles" by Franz Liszt, one of the many works I learned during my classical training years studying music theory and piano technique.  Here played by one of my favorite pianists Claudio Arrau;

Lovely. I recognize the first movement of this piece from SMT Nocturne whenever the main character enters the Cathedral of Shadows.

I do indeed enjoy certain 20th century composers such as Barber, and his Sonata for piano;

Mozart is generally remembered for the jewel-like perfection of his music. This piece, however, stands out with its more ominous opening. It's been nicknamed "Dissonance."



It would be a shame to leave out Danse Macabre if we're talking about a darker feel. I'm always surprised how modern this composition feels. (Written in 1874)




And one of the most popular sounds from Debussy, Clair de Lune. (Light of the Moon)


"I look beyond;
Flowers are not,
Nor tinted leaves.
On the sea beach
A solitary cottage stands
In the waning light
Of an autumn eve."

-Sen no Rikyū

Liszt "Ballade No. 2" darkly beautiful, technically challenging, and fun to play;
