To me this type of "classical" music is very movie soundtrack sounding to me and is reminiscent of Danny Elfman.

Re: classical music like this?

1. Classical is an actual period of music & and there is nothing classical about what you linked.
2. If you mean "music with strings and/or full orchestra" I recommend the Romantic period, esp. the various nationalistic composers of the mid-late 1800s. The favorite of mine is Smetena and his work Ma Vlast.

Re: classical music like this?

The instrumentation sounds like a string quartet, and the syncopations in it reminds me a bit of the music of Igor Stravinsky.

Here's some Stravinsky to see if it's close to what you're looking for:

Here's a bit more Stravinsky (ignore the WWII footage in this one and just listen to the music):

And a little bit more...
