Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum so thought I drop a line. I'm from London, love all sorts of dark emotional music, mainly classical and always on the lookout for new composers in the line of debussy, satie, romantic music ect.
I hope to get enlightened here!


:-)

Hi. Do you know the music of Charles Martin Loeffler (1861-1935)? If not it's worth checking out. I discovered his music recently, when I did a concert with Ondine Musique that included some songs for soprano, viola and piano by this composer.

Hi Kate,

finding specific dark piano pieces is always a question of good research, you will find good stuff from Schuhmann, also Scriabin can be quite dark, Rachmaninov has some dark stuff with his solo piano compositions, I am also always looking for contemporary composers but didnt had any luck yet.

Thanks

Mike

Hi Kate -


There are many modern composers who may be considered "dark," especially atonal composers such as Schoenberg, Webern, Berg, and Dallopiccola. A favorite of mine is George Crumb - hard to play (includes a lot of special effects by playing on the strings of the piano) but really great!

I am a composer, and Debussy and Satie are huge influences on me. I would invite you to check out some of my pieces; they're a little on the dark side.

http://www.adamscottneal.com/latefrost.htm (has mp3 clips, scores coming soon!)

cheers!
