how about Music of the Spheres by Langgaard for starters.....  Langgaard was an interesting fellow.. follower of Theosophical Society  and hollow earthers.... interesting for 1920s

The Music of the Spheres is a symphonic work of great complexity, calling for a large orchestra, organ and choir, a supporting (distant) orchestra including a soprano voice, and a further piano on which the strings are played directly rather than via the keys. It was composed during World War I, but only performed twice (in Germany in 19211922) during Langgaard's lifetime and lay dormant for almost 50 years before being rediscovered. When it was rediscovered in the late 1960s, it was considered remarkably modern and reflective of the pathfinding style in which Langgaard composed.
In 2010 Music of the Spheres received its British premiere at The Proms, conducted by Thomas Dausgaard. (on dacapo)
