    Sounds to me like the opening of Richard Strauss's 'Also sprach Zarathustra' (Thus Spake Zoroaster) to me. It's the first 2 minutes of a 35-minute symphonic poem. A shame no-one listens to the rest - it's actually quite good.

    It's not a 'song'. By definition, songs are sung by singers and have words. Better generic terms to use are 'work', 'piece' and 'composition'.
