Heaviest Classical Pieces


The Top Ten

1 Symphony No.8 movement 3 - Dmitri Shostakovich

What a great list idea! And I like that you make associations with metal music. - Metal_Treasure

Greatclassicrecords made a great video for it on YouTube. - Alkadikce

2 Presto - Summer - The Four Seasons - Antonio Vivaldi

One of the most popular classical pieces, no question why. - Alkadikce

3 Glorification of the Chosen One - Igor Stravinsky

The beginning has even more energy than Painkiller. - Alkadikce

4 Symphony No.2 - Sergei Prokofiev

It has a good effect on you if you first listen to the first minute of Prokofiev's first symphony and then this. - Alkadikce

5 Symphony No.9 - Antonín Dvořák

Even the slow movement (2, Largo) has a melody like a power ballad. - Alkadikce

6 Battle on the Ice - Sergei Prokofiev

Yep, Viking Metal, Battle Metal and even Power Metal - Metal_Treasure

Even the title suggests a metal song. - Alkadikce

7 Concerto for Cello, Strings and B.C. in A minor

IT IS VIVALDI I forgot the composer in the heading. - Alkadikce

The last movement is pure thrash metal. - Alkadikce

Yes, I can imagine part of it being played by Metallica's James Hetfield as abrasive thrash riffs. - Metal_Treasure

8 Festival in Bagdad. Shipwreck. Conclusion - Scheherazade - Rimsky-Korsakov

The beginning was used in the Smurfs when Gargamel's castle showed up but then it sadly continued with Schubert's symphony in B minor. - Alkadikce

9 Mars - Gustav Holst

This piece is so Metal! - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

10 Dance of the Adolescents - Igor Stravinsky

The Contenders

11 Concerto in F movement III - George Gershwin

Sounds like a war theme. - Alkadikce
