Sometimes as a musician I feel the power of what I'm playing or listening to. It goes beyond the visceral thrills of most rock (not all) and allows me to really feel the emotions the composer was trying to evoke.
Here are a few examples that affect me. Some of these are a bit silly but do really make an emotional appeal. At least to me.

Ride of the Fire mares, James Horner, Krull Soundtrack. Few pieces of music really evoke more of a feeling of movement and urgency.
Nash Descends into Parcher's World, James Horner, A Beautiful Mind. Starting with madness working to understanding
And the mountains rising nowhere, Joseph Schwantner, The musical telling of the 7 steps of loss. Heart wrenching and incredible
It doesn't matter, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Wonderful and Heartfelt.
Jupiter, Gustav Holtz, Joyful, Regal and Brilliantly Orchestrated.
Fanfare for the Common Man, Aaron Copeland, THE Fanfare, Uplifting beyond compare.
Battle Drums, Akira Yamaoka, Silent Hill Zero Soundtrack, Scary shit.

This is not a complete list by any means.

Please add your ideas!
