The 2011 Ain’t Baroque Trick-or-Treat Soundtrack

Last year I posted a spooky playlist for your Halloween pleasure, suitable for trick-or-treating, costume parties, and general pursuits of fright. It went over pretty well, so here it is again — only BETTER, because it’s augmented with additional suggestions. Let me know if you have any to add yourself!

  1. Toccata and Fugue in d minor, by J. S. Bach (natch)
  2. Carnival of the Animals, VII “Aquarium,” by Camille Saint-Saens
  3. Funeral March of a Marionette, by Charles Gounod
  4. “The Ghost’s High Noon” from Ruddigore, by Sir Arthur Sullivan (I’m partial to the King’s Singers version)
  5. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, by Paul Dukas
  6. I. “Gnomus,” from Pictures at an Exhibition, by Modest Mussourgsky
  7. “Grim Grinning Ghosts” as performed by the Swingtips
  8. Night on Bald Mountain, by Modest Mussourgsky (suggested by Ed Blonski)
  9. Le Sacre du Printemps, by Igor Stravinsky
  10. Danse Macabre, by Camille Saint-Saens
  11. “March to the Scaffold” and “Witches’ Sabbath” from Symphonie Fantastique, by Hector Berlioz (suggested by Helikonios)
  12. “In The Hall of the Mountain King” from Peer Gynt, by Edvard Grieg

About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.

  1. Wish I could make this wonderful ptooucridn, however I will be out of town. Please continue to post what the OC Symphony is doing. I hope to attend one of their concerts. Thank you for all you do to keep us informed.
