I'm also looking for and listening to really dark classical music. I don't know of any sites off hand.
Here is a list I know of songs I know of

Pictures of an Exhibition - Gnome
Pictures of an Exhibition - Oxen
Pictures of an Exhibition - Goldenberg and Schmulye
Pictures of an Exhibition - Baba Yaga

Bartoks Piano Suite - 3rd movement

Appasionatta Sonata 1st + 3rd movements

Songs and Dances of Death

A Night on Bald Mountain

Mars from the Planets

Rite of Spring

Danse Macrabre

Prokokievs War Sonatas

Moonlight Sonata 1st and 3rd movements

Supposedly some of Mahlers music although I haven't listened to it yet.......

What's your email address or screen name?

To any classical music listeners that may read this board... Is there a site that archives mostly the 'darker' sounding minor key classical music MIDI's (along the lines of "toccata and fugue in D minor")?

: I'm sure there is a lot on this site, it's just a matter of sifting through it all!

: PS. If you're looking for contemorary neo-classic MIDI, here's a handy Yngwie Malmsteen MIDI page!


: songs I recommend are overture 1383, icarus suite, golden dawn, rising force, sorrow, and demon driver.
