|'gothic' Classical Music? Please?|
I'm more of a metal guy, from time to time I stumble upon 'classical' inspired parts into songs, I'd like to know of some composers who write (wrote) this kind of classical as their main style. Metal vocabulary is quite limited, this kind of pieces are only described as like 'neo-classical' or even 'symphonic'. 'Gothic' is also far from being a good descriptive, but I guess it's because I'd hear these sounds as background music in Dracula's castle, Poe's novels and shit.
tldr; I need recs that sound similar to these

|Any recs are welcome, srsly. Maybe it's not quite the site to ask for that, but classical fans are fucking picky about their time periods and I don't know shit, so yeah.|
|Try these man:|
Rhapsody Of Fire - From Chaos to Eternity
Blind Guardian - At the Edge of Time
Avantasia - The Wicked Symphony
But do you know of classical composers who wrote stuff in that vein? In the examples, the sound is mixed with metal because that's what I mostly listen to and what introduced me to the sound, but I'd really like some 'true' classical music within the same vibe :/ Thanks for your help though, unlike Mr. Ire.
|I don't have any composers for you, but may I suggest Dead Can Dance's Within The Realm of A Dying Sun.|
The genres of neofolk and martial industrial overlap heavily with neoclassical too, I would suggest checking out groups such as Laibach.
I believe this is a Wagner sample, album is full of stuff like this if you dig.
|I don't really listen to classical music. :/|
|I'm not too well-versed either, but if you mean you want 'darker' composers, try the Russians.|
Stravinsky: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTDSd0jQ5PQ (listen to all four parts)
There are plenty of other composers who have done heavier, moodier pieces, even if not all their work is something that Drac would be spinning in his castle.
|But Jacula is.|
|Sir go give Tristania's Beyond The Veil a listen if you're wanting some gothic symphonic(ish) metal, here's a favorite track - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4Zg5bB7yVc i|
If pure instrumental is your thing I highly recommend Nox Arcana, again here's a favorite - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGLGxjXYuKI
|It seems like what I'm looking for is kind of the step that went from classical/neo-classical to stuff like dark ambient/gothic. Thanks for the recommendations, I guess I now have at least decent bases for future searches.|
|try on vivaldi's four seasons (great starting point)|
