Favorite 19th century extended harmony

Favorite uses of extended harmony (7th chords other than dominant, 9th, 11th or 13th chords) in 19th century music?

Maj7 chords in coda of Schumann's Arabeske

minor 11th chord opening of Brahms op 119 no 1

Did not know that piece, cool example.  Difficult to describe using conventional tonality

All of those displaced harmonies at the beginning of Schumann's Kreisleriana are pretty fascinating, though I suppose theory would treat them as anticipations or suspensions rather than harmonic structures in their own right.

The B-flat minor chord over a ninth that opens the finale of Mahler's Second is rather striking, too.

What piece is that?  Probably would call that harmony a French Augmented 6th
