I dig the classic.

I've never really come across any composers that create a 'dark' atmosphere. I want some of that. Like the doom metal of classical music.

Atmospheric, dark, low, deep, heavy, whatever.

Luminescent Orchestrii - I think these guys are pretty interesting. Sort of a Classical/Folk/Punk hybrid (and I wasn't exactly sure where to post this) with a pretty heavy Middle Eastern influence. I really enjoyed Neptune's Daughter.

Oh, and I was wondering if somebody could help me get into "modern classical music."

It's downright shameful that I'm not well informed there considering how much I listen to classical music.

I realize this is an overwhelmingly broad request. Just a laundry list of composers I need to check out that aren't the greats everybody knows about would be great

Looking into:

Debussy(for some reason I put it off this long)
Clementi

I don't know much about Clementi, but here's some Debussy stuff. Of course, I love his music because there are beautiful flute parts. Some of it you may have already heard of, like Claire de Lune (which Twilight swiftly ruined for me). But I think these pieces are absolutely beautiful:

Prelude à l'après-midi d'un faune:


Syrinx - for solo flute. Debussy only wrote two pieces for solo flute and this is one of them. I tried to play this once and it was an absolute disaster


Valse Romantique:


La fille aux cheveux de lin:


The Nocturnes:

Nuages:


Fêtes:


Sirènes:


Those are my personal choices from Debussy's extensive catalogue. If you go on YouTube and look him up, you'll find all kinds of stuff

I've got this one down for Burning Down from our shared love of Scott Joplin:
One aspect I've been increasingly interested in is ragtime on the guitar, which I'm hoping doesn't sound too obvious or cheesy:
Giovanni De Chiaro: Plays Joplin's work beautifully in a way that fills the listener with warmth.


If you like ragtime on the guitar, one of the best people to check out is Blind Blake, who started his work about a decade after Joplin, but still very similar.

Don't know much about classical, but I have a composition for violin from Paganini, concerto#1, and that to me is amazing music. I can't play violin but I know just about every notes by heart. It stick with that one.
