Four CDs. Many of the great classical composers have a dark side. Though perhaps hidden in their personal lives, it comes alive in their music. This album focuses on the very darkest pieces of classical repertoire, and brings these brooding composers into the safety of your home. The 50 Darkest Pieces of Classical Music contains a rich variety of gloomy numbers. From the darker regions of Beethoven's genius, there is his 5th symphony. From the gothic blueprint of Carl Orff there is "Carmina Burana". And from the death obsessed mind of Franz Liszt there is his ominous "Totentanz". All of the titles not only showcase the tortured souls of these great composers, but they also connect with our universal fascination for the darker side of humankind. With the Darkest Pieces of Classical Music we bring you the best picks from the dark side of the palate. The album contains 4 CDs with 50 chilling tracks, definitely not for the faint of heart.
