I'm looking for some good instrumental music, can be modern instruments or classical, or both.

Im looking mainly for really emotional sounding pieces, like anger, passion, sadness, pain, fury -- music that shows those types of things.

I can never seem to find stuff like that cuz I dont know where to start looking for it.

any recommendations?

Niccolo Paganini is a pretty impressive violinist. Ode To Joy is always great (the whole thing, not the commonly played section). Uh, the Edward Scissorhands soundtrack? I don't know, I actually just got interested in the classical forms of music.

+1 with ode to joy.

It's amazing how they start with the violoncellos, and then slowly switch to the violas and the to the violins, and then suddenly they bring the whole chorus with the opera singers.
If that doesn't bring tears to your eyes, then you are doomed.

Anger: Don't know :\
Passion: Ode To Joy; Summer (vivaldi)
Sadness: Moonlight Sonata; Lacrymosa.
Pain: Lacrymosa.
Fury: Don't know :\

My favourite instrumental by a band is "The Wrath" by Rufio.

My God they are fantastic musicians.

you should call one of the songs, "Respecting Old People" just to mix things up.

To go down a video game route..."To Zanarkand" by Nobuo Uematsu, for the Final Fantasy X soundtrack...http://youtube.com/watch?v=rLnZ5jcsRpc

Most of his stuff is pretty amazing, to be fair.

glad to see I'm not the only one interested in classical/instrumental music.

I just feel all those things right now, and like to listen to music like that as an outlet I guess.

thanks for the recommendations and keep em coming if you have more

Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, Haydn, Paganini.

A lot of their stuff kicks ass, Bach and Paganini being favorites.

I like a couple Paganini compositions, but for the most part, I really don't care for his work. Obviously he was an undeniably skilled violinist, but I never did care for much of his composing. I really only like the 24th caprice, and "La Campanella".

Well, this is comparable to virtuosos today, where a lot of their 'compositions' show off their technical skill, rather than sense of melody and overall ability to construct a song. Paganini is more a violinist whanker than a composer in my mind, but that 5th Caprice is a good one, and the 24th is as close to melody he made.

about moonlight sonata check this out

I might do something similar with my bassist friend if hes into the idea.

although instead of all the damn wah ruining the guitar, I may play it with straight clean/maybe some wah

also I'll just play the right hand notes on guitar, and he'll play the left hand notes on bass -- direct transcription, I may distort or overdrive it though.

I suppose it was just his taste I didn't care for, too. Franz Liszt was also a composer who wrote music that showed off his ability, but I love his music so much. I prefer it far more than Paganini, but I still wouldn't call it better. But yeah, you're probably right about musicians showing off technical ability.

Any of those wicked awesome crunchy organ fugues by Bach.

Toccata and fugue in D minor (BWV 565) is the famous one.

Alexandre Therrien.

I think that's how you spell it.

He plays a Flamenco type of music, but he integrates other music styles in it.

Vivaldi's Summer theme.
And as for modern: Firewind - Before the Storm is extremely emotional, you won't regret listening to it.

65daysofstatic are a fantastic hard rock band with no signer.
Really epic, and atmospheric.
