It was a few pieces to start out with, mainly Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on Theme by Paganini and Holst's The Planets. I also took a music appreciation class in college which really turned out to be a rudimentary music theory class combined with a solid history of western music. I had long since been listening to "classical" music by that point, but that class really honed my critical listening skills, as well as added a lot of depth to my listening experience as a whole.
