I'm going to surprise myself by being the first to mention Korngold, who in his pre-Hollywood period especially was a very accomplished and serious composer.
Who became less accomplished and less serious when he went to Hollywood?!?!   ::)

I was thinking Laangaard's first symphony. Of those not mentioned, there is also Alfven, Bortkiewicz, Godowsky, Medtner, and Coleridge-Taylor. Pierne may be too modern, but I think he fits that late romantic style for the most part.
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

Szymanowski I adore, Zemlinsky I haven't heard much of yet. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

If I understand you correctly, sounds like you're looking for a little more adventurous late romantic...

Anything Durosoir

The Chinese Symphony of Van Dieren

Langgaard - The Time of the End

Malipiero.

Oh and Jean Cras is always great.

Actually, I have no idea if these are what you're looking for. But they are mostly great anyway.

Whatever the more modern harmonic vocabulary, this seems to be wholly made of almost nothing but romantic gestures.  A composer with more than two feet in a number of camps...
Florent Schmitt:
Symphonie Concertante, Op.82
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50H94eSNqkM
Psaume XLVII

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3RNRzhKhwY

Some blazing flashes of the more obvious and well-known.  Add to your list Scriabin's lush eccentricities!

The premiere of Le Poème de l'Extase was a private performance attended by an invited audience of composers, artists and literati.  Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was in attendance, and commented about Scriabin, "He is half-mad!"  I think at that time in Scriabin's life, Nikolai's comment was spot-on.  If you never listened to these Scriabin works all the way through, their quirks and excesses will make you smile, frown, laugh and cry, lol.

Scriabin:
Le Poème de l'Extase op. 54

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/BWINpXNd5KE" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/BWINpXNd5KE</a>
Prométhée ou le Poème du feu op. 60
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/6osJBtQRjoY" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/6osJBtQRjoY</a>

IF you haven't gotten around to Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht, Op 4 in its original string sextet format... (the only way I care to hear it.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEhkC9lMe2A

and this quintessential late romantic ditty, in my favored Bruno Walter recording, with perfect tempi, clarity, balance -- the singers quite fine, and not engineered so 'forward,' as is the case with far too many a recording with vocal or instrumental soloists.
Mahler ~ Das Lied von der Erde

An unknown gem from Croatia: Sunny fields by Blagoje Bersa. This is music that will appeal to those who love Mahler, Richard Strauss,Respighi and Szymanowski.

Difficult to find a recording...

Browsing through my cds, I found some music by Johan Wagenaar. Maybe not the most "personal" sounding music, but it is really brillant and superbly orchestrated.


Some good examples:

I'd like to second Spineur's recommendation that you explore the music of Frank Bridge.  He was Benjamin Britten's most important teacher and mentor, as well as being a very  fine composer in his own right.  Elgar and Vaughan Williams are people you should explore.  One composer I didn't see mentioned here is Karol Szymanowski, another is Leos Janacek.  And although he is a little early for your timeline, I would suggest you might want to investigate the chamber music of Max Bruch.  I am not very excited about his much more famous concerti and symphonies, but his chamber music is truly amazing.  In fact, I find that I am constantly impressed by the lesser known works of already recognizably great composers--Schubert's Masses & Dvorak's Cypresses among them.  Also, Wilhelm Stenhammar's six string quartets, and, of course, Camille Saint-Saens, whose last published work (1924, I believe) was an oboe sonata.  People think he died much sooner than he actually did!
