Choose your poison from these 20 classic horror pieces, from Saint-Saëns to John Williams…
Why do some classical music scare us? Is it the noise, the music, or the scary story that music can tell?
This Halloween, discover the composers and music that make us tremble with fear. Grieg – In the Hall of the Mountain
Grieg’s most disturbing painting is to evoke a chaos filled with trolls, gnomes, and goblins. Grieg himself was not a big fan, however; he once said, “For the Hall of the Mountain King, I wrote something that smelled so strongly of cow dung, ultra-Norwegianism, and ‘perfect self’ that I could not hear it, although I hope that the confusion will be. feel.
Saint-Saens – Danse Macabre
As the title suggests, Camille Saint-Saëns’ dark little song has everything to make the audience wonder. The piece tells the story of Death (a violinist, literally) raising the dead from their graves on Halloween and dancing to his music.
John Williams – color
It doesn’t seem logical that just two notes could cause such an effect, but John Williams managed it. His Spielberg movie Jaws has been sending people out to sea since 1975.
Mussorgsky – Night and Barefoot
Beginning life as a rock band called St. John’s Night on Bald Mountain, Mussorgsky’s most famous work was made famous when Rimsky-Korsakov rewrote it and included it in the Disney musical Fantasia. Regardless of its incarnation, it is a chilling masterpiece. 더존카지노
Maurice Jarre – Ghost
This may be more disturbing and supernatural than negative, but nonetheless, Maurice Jarre’s score for Ghost is still worth listening to. Berlioz – A Halloween Dream from Symphonie Fantastique
Hector Berlioz uses a variety of musical styles to create the witches’ hall – violinists use their bows to create the sound of cauldrons popping, the sound of funeral bells and the chorus of laughter.
Bernard Hermann – Psycho
As Janet Leigh’s Marion Crane climbs into Bates Motel, what appears to be set up as a romantic comedy quickly turns into a 1960s Hitchcock horror film. It features Bernard Herrmann’s famous slasher line, which has become a cliché of cinematic horror.
J.S. Bach – Toccata & Fugue in D minor
It is one of the greatest songs when it comes to music. J.S. Bach’s booming Toccata and Fugue in D minor have been used in musicals such as The Black Cat, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and even in Doctor Who.
Jerry Goldsmith – The Twilight Zone
The Twilight Zone now looks like an old ghost festival, but when it came to the 1982 film version of the popular TV show, Jerry Goldsmith stepped in to make it as creepy as possible. 에볼루션게이밍
Carl Orff – “O Fortuna” (Carmina Burana)
When it comes to pure anger, few people can match Carl Orff. Carmina Burana’s ‘O Fortuna’ will soon be replaced by a powerful, heart-pounding musical work, which goes down in a blaze of music.
Paul Dukas – The Occult Teacher
Another classic from the influence of some Walt Disney, Dukas’ sinister subject will be associated with the image of Mickey Mouse trying to bring out soldiers with mops.
Verdi – ‘The Death of Irae’ (Requiem)
When it comes to chilling music, it’s hard to beat Verdi’s ‘Dies Irae’ or ‘Days of Wrath’. Verdi’s Requiem is a great success by any measure, but the depiction of Doomsday is disappointing. Good luck.
