scary classical music Celebrate Halloween in macabre style with these bone-chilling masterpieces! Mussorgsky: Night on Bald Mountain The image of brooding, winged ghouls wreaking havoc on a mountain village under cover of night has terrified generations of young children in Walt Disney's Fantasia. Inspired by Russian legend, Mussorgsky's tone poem depicts the dark ritual of a witches' sabbath.

Herrmann: Psycho Suite Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique: Dreams of a Witches' Sabbath Liszt: Totentanz Liszt loved to flirt with death.
