Hello, as the title says I'm looking for some pieces that create a dark or haunting vibe. I've noticed that therethere isn't much guitar music of this kind which seems normal if you consider the sound of the insrument. What I mean is that for piano for example, which has more dynamics and octaves , you can find much more music ofthis style, like the russians (shostakovich, rachmaninoff, prokofiev), grieg, stockhausen , of course chopin and many more. There are though some great pieces for guitar too. Great examples are Nikita Koshkin-Usher Waltz and Armand Coeck-Constellations. So I hope I gave you some food for thought and can't wait to see your responses
I think that Weiss' Ciacona fits that description:
Gaelle plays it in G Minor, but I'd recommend that you either:
a. Play Alice Artzt's arrangement in A Minor; or
b. Play Goran Sollscher's arrangement in E Minor, but do so on a 7 or 8 string classical guitar with a capo on the 3rd fret, which will sound in G Minor.
If you play Sollscher's version, you'll have to raise many of the low bass notes by an octave, but that holds true for all arrangements of this piece on a six string guitar. I point it out with reference to Sollscher's version simply because he arranged the piece for his 11 string Alto guitar, and you won't have that many low bass notes available on open strings.
Sollscher's arrangement can be found in the Altgitarren book, which was written for Alto Guitar:

BTW, this piece was originally a lute/flute duet, and Michel Cardin reconstructs what the duet may have sounded like, which can be heard here:
Bridget Mermikides's wonderful arrangement of Verdi's La Forza del Destino may also fit the bill, and lays pretty comfortably on the guitar:
If I think of any more, I'll post them:-)
