Where can I find instrumental music similar to this that has deep, mystical, arcane, and intriguing themes?


This is from the Warcraft III official soundtrack. Where can I find music like this?

  • To me this seems just like classic music, with some environmental feel to it. Have you tried soundtracks from similar games or movies? Perhaps The Elder Scrolls Series or The Lord of the Ring Series? Jan 12, 2018 at 15:44
  • Yes, I've looked into that. I've given Richard Wagner and Rachmaninoff a go. I adore the LOTR and Elder Scrolls soundtrack. Thank you kindly for your input. Jan 12, 2018 at 16:11

    I have an answer for this question and will post the answer when my situation, involving a sick family member, is over. Please don't remove this question. This is the kind of music I was talking about: < youtube.com/watch?v=wqNtiPwm45g >. I'll rewrite the question and improve it a lot, later; including better clarification. The question can be improved with sources. Feb 3, 2020 at 13:24
  • Thanks for the input -- Jeremy Soule is a valid answer. I agree with most of Lucas Sant'anna's (user) points. Let's avoid a fight over such a mild topic like high fantasy music. I wish you the best. Feb 3, 2020 at 14:34
