    Good depressing classical music

    I love deeply grim and depressing classical music. I've spent a ton of time googling, and I found some good stuff (this page was very helpful). Here's some stuff I like:

    * Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata
    * Rachmaninoff's Prelude In G Sharp minor, Op. 32, No. 12
    * Chopin's Sonata 2 (includes the Funeral March)

    Can anybody recommend similarly depressing classical music?

    EDIT: I just took a look at Pandora Radio. Very cool.

    Benjamin Britten has some pretty intense pieces, and definitely check out Arvo Parte for some calm-yet-sort-of-creepy music. Also there is some pretty grim stuff by Shostakovich and Mahler.

    Also it helps if you try to configure your Slitaz wireless while you listen.

    Depressing or calming?

    Then I think you can include most of Chopin in your classification. Definitely melancholy.

    I'd add Mahler to that, too. Das Lied von der Erde is all about death. (Makes me feel grim just remembering listening to it.)
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    ok i know it's not quite classical but i think Eric Satie falls into this category.

    i specifically like - gymnopedies - La 1 Ere. Lent et Douloureux.
