    Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 last movement is also heart wrenching.
    I'll second those two, which were the first to come to my mind when I saw the initial question; I'd personally call the second more sad/sorrowful than anything else, but this is a shade of opinion. By coincidence I was listening to Tchaikovsky 6th only about half an hour ago, having not done so for a while The first movement would score pretty highly in the dramatic and emotional stakes too, particularly the fortissimo section. Given the ironic exposition of thwarted aspirations in the middle two movements, I really don't feel too surprised that he was feeling in a mood to *probably* take his own life shortly after he completed this work. Staying on the classical theme, one or two others spring to mind, not necessarily exhaustive:

    Dramatic: Mars from Holst's Planets Suite (I used to play this at full volume when I took a dislike to the neighbours ); Mahler 1st symphony, final movement; Tchaikovsky 4th, 1st movement in particular (that repeated opening motif) YouTube - Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4, 1st mvmt (1st half)

    Emotional/heart wrenching in a more positive sense: Franck's piano quintet, romantically; Messiaen's Quartet for the End of time, particularly movents 5 and 8 *more spiritural, perhaps* YouTube - Kyung Wha Chung plays Messiaen Quartet for the End of Time; on another kind of scale, the last choral part of Mahler's 8th symphony if you can take that much bombast, this one also scores pretty spectacularly on the dramatic front YouTube - Mahler - Symphony No. 8 - Ending (Rattle, NYOGB)

    Tragic: Babi Yar symphony by Shostakovich, 1st movement in particular, though you probably need to understand more russian than me to get the full effect YouTube - Babi Yar Requiem

    Well, these will do for now...
