I've got a whole playlist that (mostly) fits your list! It's my own "Focus" list, when everything else is distracting.

(There are a few lyrical songs, but the lyrics in those feel like they melt into the music. Skip if you dislike, of course.)

Besides that, one of my favorite instrumental bands is Les Friction. Their albums all have lyrics, but they also publish the instrumental-only versions. I also love the music of Kai Engel, Sergey Cheremisinov, and George Winston (depending on mood).

P.S. I'm equally likely to crank "RED — of Beauty of Rage", which is sweeping orchestral heavy metal.
