^Yes, CC, two folk-barque classics! Witchwood and Mr. Fox. Damn good stuff! Thumbs Up

I love both Mr Fox albums.  This song is one of the saddest and sweetest I have ever known.  Don't believe me?  Listen to it

Please help recommend some other songs/tracks like that.  Also, the closing section of Gracious' Super Nova = simply wonderful as is their song "Heaven".

I'm hungry for more moments like that.  Please feed my fat belly.

the beauty in that moment is in my opinion not the melody but that they kind of improvise a fugue upon that theme

Of course there's so much beauty on Yes's music for me. But a few particularly memorable ones for me that may not often receive so much attention and that I might consider equivalent to that Bolero part are, on "The Revealing Science of God", an acoustic part that begins at 13 min. The intro to "That, that is" (called togetherness), and the intro to "Mind Drive". So... all Steve Howe acoustic moments...

One does not have to look too hard to find many, beautiful moments in Opeth songs. They are there, in between the brutal clutter, which most folks don't enjoy.

To name the most striking one for me, those guitars at the beginning of "The Drapery Falls"... just sublime. It took me a while to apreciate them, and in the live version from Lamentations, but it has become my favourite Opeth song, and the only one I like with growling from them.

They actually played in Calif in 82? Wow!  Thought they were very much restricted to the East Coast by then.

Harmonium was already mentioned for Histoires sans Paroles, and indeed that song is just one wonderful melody after another, and I couldn't choose which one I would recommend. However, there's another bit from the band that shines just as brightly, and may even be closer to what I understand you love from that Bolero part (which I also love so much), and that's on the song called Harmonium, from their first album: the ending instrumental bit from that one is just beautiful too. Also, Mike Oldfield has many such moments. If you haven't yet, you should get his first four albums, plus the very last one (return to Ommadawn). Particularly, the opening moments of side 2 of Hergest Ridge, the opening for Ommadawn, the last minutes of side 4 of Incantations, as well as many moments through Tubular Bells (particularly on the Finale part of side 1, plus several parts on about the first half of side 2). Oh yeah, and the Africa 1 section from the Amarok album.

As i try to find any place on PA to spread the news and that on this post Harmonium is talked about, here would be my pick for a non prog album : Serge Fiori after 25 years of retirement had made a comeback. Self titled  album of which "Seule" Laisse moi partir" and the double ending of "Si bien /  Epilogue" would qualify for his uncomparable vocalese in falsetto way, strings added for Epilogue. Complete review on the "I recommend" post...
