My recent interest in prog rock coupled with the fact that most prog bands list classical composers as influences has made me realize that there is a wealth of classical music out there somewhere that isn't mind numbingly boring.

I'm looking for sprawling, intense, I guess maybe foreboding, nervous, paranoid, and (as much as I hate this word) epic classical music. Not all these attributes must be present, but the more the better.

And since I no next to nothing about classical music, I figure what better way to get a straight response than here at I-Mockery where I'm respected (emoticon: picklehat). I know a few people here know their shit about classical music (like Krythor whenever he shows up). Where can I find what I'm looking for?

Not that I'm a huge classical buff or anything but I do find Schubert to be decent.

Try Yngwie Malmsteen. He does Classical Metal guitars, something to ease into classical. Or try Pachelbel for regular classical.

Also the obvious ones like Mozart's Requiem and Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (particularly the first and third movements) are worth checking out if you've not already heard them (in the case of the latter you've almost certainly heard the first movement before).

I'm not scared to say the obvious obvious ones, like the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, or Ride of the Valkyries by Wagner.

I'm also not scared of being corrected about which movements I am talking about, or that this music is not BY, but FROM these composers. Or something like that.
