    Rachmaninoff's Moment Musicaux no.4 is an explosion of anger and ultra fast note cascades for the left hand, powerful passages written as FFF (very very loud) and an aggressive theme.

    Since "bombast" and "bombastic" refer to overblown speech or writing, no classical music piece can be bombastic. Perhaps you mean which pieces are the noisiest. There's plenty of candidates for that.

    I don't think of classical music as being bombastic.

    4'33. Absolutely nothing can come close to the ballsiness it took to write that.

    Les Préludes by Liszt.

    Mussorgsky - "Great Gate at Kiev" from Pictures at an Exhibition. Originally for piano, it was orchestrated.  there are countless other works that would compete for the same spot - big Richard Strauss works, lots of Russian things, and of course the whole steaming pile of movie scores, written in the same style.

    Rite of Spring is the one that springs to mind.  It's epic.
