Scary Piano Pieces - Fantasy and Fugue on a Theme of B-A-C-H by Liszt

 Go up to a piano and play the notes B-flat, A, C and B. Sounds scary, doesn't it?

This is a frightening piece by Liszt which explores the theme of B-A-C-H on the piano (or B-flat, A, C and B). My favourite thing about this piece is the fact that this theme is used pretty much everywhere, whether it's in a slow, sinister passage or a fast turn. Above you can find the first part played by Marc-Andre Hamelin in the Canadian TV channel 'Bravo'. I apologise for the poor audio quality!
