September 24, 2017 - Comment

Some of the great classical composers have a dark side and while perhaps hidden in their personal lives, it comes alive in their music. There exists a rich variety of gloomy numbers from the darker regions: Beethoven’s 5th, the gothic blueprint of Orff’s Carmina Burana, and Liszt’s Totentanz to name a few. All of the titles not only showcase the tortured souls of these great composers, but also connect with our universal fascination for the darker side of humankind.
