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.

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)
