    Default Classical music piece help

    Hello all, I am just starting to appreciate classical music, and I need your help. I herd this piece a while ago, and I liked it, but I don't know the name of it, or the composer. What I do remember about the piece though is that the theme of it is supposed to be like spirits rising up during the night, and it reaches a climax during the night. It becomes very hectic. Than the morning comes, and the tone descends into peacefullness until the piece eventually stops. Again I think it is supposed to have a halloween theme, with the spirits and stuff. I think it is fairly old, and it is a famous piece, by a famous composer. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    Welcome to TC, Caged Wisdom.

    I think it's Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens.
