There's a song that I love to play on piano called "L'Orage" (which means "The Storm") and its composer is Burgmüller. Find a good version of it though, because when played with passion it's very 'thunderous.'

I don't know about "thunderous", but Mozart's Symphony No. 25 and Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor are definitely dramatic and upbeat.

Liszt has a lot of piano works that are very dramatic. Listen to his Hungarian Rhapsodies and transcendental etudes, especially No. 10 in f minor.

This is one of my favorite interpretations of Liszt. And it is definetly "thunderous".
Georges Cziffra - Liszt's Etude No. 10 in f minor

Definatley Overture 1812!
I play it in the band im in twice a year, we start halfway through the piece [as its too long for a band of my type!] And it starts with mellow sounds, then gradually builds up to the epic ending which everyone has heard!

P.s. also one of the hardest things to play on a bass clarinet - notes are too high for my poor bass's liking!

i dont know if any of his stuff will be quite as "thunderous" as you might want... but ive really been getting into Dvorak lately and most of his music is pretty upbeat.

Hmm try Abraham's Pursuit by David Holsinger, Choreography by Robert Sheldon, or Danzas Cubanas by Robert Sheldon. Danzas Cubanas is really awesome, lol.

I don't know if this is exactly "thunderous", but I would add Love, the Magician by Manuel de Falla, and especially the 5th and 8th movements (Dance of Terror and Ritual Fire Dance, respectively):




EDIT: Ops! I forgot to mention Carmen's Overture by Bizet!!! Sorry. Here you are:
