These are in the 'vocabulary' of modern and contemporary classical music.That area has a wide variety of styles, from more conservative 'modern' (Samuel Barber) to the more complex avant-garde.
There is so much, of such different styles, room here allows for little.
More by Samuel Barber:
Medea (orchestral - suite from a Ballet)
His piano concerto is rather stunning:
You will want to check out, too, his lyric masterpiece, "Knoxville, summer of 1915"
and "Must the winter come so soon? from his opera 'Vanessa'
Igor Stravinsky ~ Le Sacre du Printemps, a ballet score now almost one-hundred years old and to many still sounding most aggressively 'modern.'
another 20th Century landmark
Olivier Messiaen ~ Turangalila Symphony (Massive 10-movement piece)
Lucia Dlugoszewski ~ Fire Fragile Flight (an exceptional and imo beautiful piece)
Here is an excerpt from American composer John Adams' recent opera,
"A flowering tree" (the finale)
The other two links (not Barber) fall under the category of 'film music,' which has many a classically trained composer using any number of styles, even within one film score. I'm less familiar with film scores. If you ask on Y/A classical, I'd suggest saying, in your Q, that you know Film scores are Not 'classical' - to avoid the flack or flamewar from some of the more nit-picking Y/A classical members:-)

You might enjoy the ballet music from Cinderell by Prokofiev it has many moods and very huanting melodies.
