Looking for similar music - classical/orchestral buffs needed!

Can anybody help me find similar music to this John Williams song from Indiana Jones "Marion's Theme"
I need songs that are similarly bittersweet and romantic. I'm looking for pieces with a strong dose of heartache, rather than just lovely romantic music. It's about love, but something is awry and there is pain. More of a longing sound than a fulfilled love.
Can anyone tell me anything that they think is similar? Who might have influenced Williams with this piece? Or any composers from any era that had pieces like this.
Also if anyone could tell me what's going on here musically that gives it the atmosphere it has that would be amazing.
