  1. I haven’t even looked at the play list yet LOL! I just saw “Halloween” and “Dark Classical” and got all giddy. My immediate thought… I knew I could count on you! Now, I can’t wait to go back and see what creepy goodies you have for us! I’ve been digging out all my spooky piano music and doing my own dark classical performances. Happy haunting! And thank you again for sharing.

    1. You are very welcome indeed. Sounds like you are enjoying the spooky season! I got a rather interesting one coming up at Halloween proper at sunset, although it is not anything for the piano. Just something more traditional for the occasion, I guess. 🙂
