Symphony orchestra scene?

So I'm trying to find/remember great scenes from films where a symphony orchestra is performing. Something with beautiful shots of the musicians, things like line of violinists all moving their bows in unison, emotional and powerful shots of passionate conductor, etc. Anything come to mind?

The Man Who Knew Too Much (remake) and Get Smart come to mind, as does a music movie like Shine.

A lot of old musicals have symphonic scenes, especially the ones with Oscar Levant (An American in Paris, The Barkleys of Broadway).

It was a popular cliche in 1940's Hollywood. The first film that comes to mind is I've Always Loved You, which is all about a legendary symphony conductor. The film's most pivotal scene is his pupil's orchestration in a large concert hall.

It is available on Blu-ray:

Fantasia (1940)
