The Shire Theme

written by Antonin Dvorak:

You can hear other scores from various modern day films in this 1893 symphony as well.

If you wish to listen to another symphony an orchestral suite loaded with film scores long before the films were made, whether those film scores made direct use or, as with the above, slightly repurposed, then Gustav Holst's The Planets is a gold mine.

Another one is Sergei Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 1.
