    Default Best depressing/melancholic pieces

    Ive been on the hunt for some music with a bit of darkness/melancholy and I need some reccommendations. I particularly like Mahler's String Quartet in A Minor. Does anyone know of something similar, perhaps from the same time period or later?

    If you like piano solo's my own compositions are dark/melancholic for the most part.
