No problemo.

Another port of call you could do worse than stopping at would be good old Yann Tiersen.

Philip Glass - Solo Piano

Modern classical & minimalism, similar to Part & Glass I suppose (this is a more tonal piece).


I like Morton Feldman's 'Triadic Memories', but its a lot more challenging.

look at most of the 20th century composer if your looking for innovative classical
a good place to start would be:
Morton Feldman
Steve Reich
Krzysztof Penderecki
John Cage

I love eminence symphony orchestra

Was looking for recommendations that are not so much similar to their sound, I also love variety in genres of music but complimentary. As in other classical artists that would go well with listening to this group.

For piano classical with a modern touch, check out volodus. He's a beast!

Gorecki, Rota, Preisner, Morricone(the later 3 are known as film composers, but they all have concert pieces as well), also Glass, Reich, Arvo Part and John Adams are prolific, with many operas, orchestral works and choral works among them.

Could anyone recommend some deeply tragic, sad, and emotional music? most of this kind tends to be classical so I ask here.

Something that sounds kind of like "The Incurable Tragedy I" by Into Eternity

There's so many pieces that fit into that category, but nothing tops these ones for me:

Liszt - Totentanz (the main theme of this piece is this: Dies Irae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)



Chopin - Funeral March



Mozart - Lacrymosa
