Night on bald mountain

Happy Halloween! For the occasion, one of the scariest pieces of classical music ever written, Mussorgsky's Night on bald mountain, as featured in Disney's masterpiece Fantasia. Incidentally, this is neither Mussorgsky's original version, nor the more popular arrangement by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, but a version created especially for the movie by Leopold Stokowski.
