For my senior recital next year I'm hoping to do an all devilish music program, and I've got some basic stuff that comes to mind. Liszt's Mephisto Waltz, Scarbo, and the Ligeti 13th Etude. But are there any pre-Liszt pieces that would fit programmatically with a program like that?

Toccatas by Frescabaldi--they are very chromatic

Sonata in A minor by Mozart (okay, this one is a stretch)

The third movement of Moonlight sonata. I have played it, but there are actually a couple of melodies in it.

Hmm, Revolutionary Etude, and Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C Minor (I think) seems evil.

hmm if that's the case then i recommend the last movement of the "Appassionata" sonata by Beethoven.

The Rach Prelude in C minor (op 23 no.7?) doesn't sound evil to me though, although i think it's a very exuberant piece.
