Siegfried's Tod from Gotterdammerung by Wagner comes to mind.
Yeah, the music for Götterdämmerung fits this description to a tee, doesn't it? Wagner uses his harmonic language to suffuse the dozens of themes that the audience has become familiar with over the previous three nights with frightening and unsettling sororities, and uses them to create an atmosphere where there is an unshakable feeling of dread. The music associated with Hagen is especially disturbing.
