Listen to what James Horner did with woodwinds and percussion/keyboard instruments in the main theme to the movie “Sneakers”, above. Brilliant orchestration.
There are also some great strings and vocal scoring in other tracks, like this one, as well as percussion. Note how he builds tension around 3:15 with tympani and wood blocks, then brings in piano more as percussion than melody:
A truly unique and instantly recognizable soundtrack, and one of my favorites.
