I’ll try my hand at this again (in no particular order):

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 7 in C major, “Leningrad”, Op. 60
Bartók: Bluebeard’s Castle
Vaughan Williams: Symphony No. 5
Sibelius: The Oceanides, Op. 73
Nielsen: Symphony No. 3 "Sinfonia Espansiva", Op. 27, FS 60
Martinů: Musique de Chambre No. 1 "Les fêtes nocturnes", H 376
Dvořák: The Wild Dove Op. 110, B. 198
Ives: ’Holidays’ Symphony
Szymanowski: Litany to the Virgin Mary, Op. 59

Of course, lists like these are always subject to change.

“I really would like to go to Marmorkirken. It was there that I heard music for the first time, and that experience is like a heavenly vision for me.” - Rued Langgaard
