Don't expect to hear a version of "Monster Mash" among the 11 tracks on this Halloween-themed set. These are orchestral arrangements of classical pieces that reflect the macabre side of things, including Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King," Wagner's "The Ride of the Valkyries," and Mussorgsky's "A Night on Bald Mountain," among other pieces of like ilk. It's not actually scary, but it's intense and urgent, making it a nice soundtrack for a Halloween porch display or party.
