Mmm…

Chopin Etude Op.10-12 Revolutionary was composed when he was angry and sad about the failed revolution in Poland against Russia.

Prokofiev’s “War Sonatas” for piano is based on his anger and grief towards War.

Just to note on Arthur Mornington’s answer; I was told that the Tempest was based on Shakespeare’s play “Tempest”. So, I don’t know if that counts as anger… although I do agree it does sound aggressive

  1. A number of Beethoven’s sonatas, especially the middle sonatas, are really quite angry, as this was when he was coming to terms with becoming deaf, which he was not pleased about. The most well known of these are ‘The Tempest’ (No. 17) and the Appassionata (No. 23). The later sonatas, such as the Hammerklavier, are not so much angry as triumphant, so I wouldn’t count them, despite their volume.
    Ah, well, Beethoven didn’t write the Tempest with ‘The Tempest’ in mind, it was the notorious Schindler that said that later. (and Beethoven never called No. 17 ‘The Tempest’)
