This is my non-exhaustive list of classical music that invokes nostalgia and particular emotions:

  • Piano Sonata No. 11
  • Lux Aeterna (requiem for a dream)
RequiemMozartThis dramatic and intense piece has been used in many movies to convey a sense of foreboding or ominousness.
AllegrettoBeethovenDramatic uneasy feeling building up to something not right.
