Try some Tchaikovsky. The Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture is amazing. Or Bach. Personally I'm not a fan of Beethoven or Mozart, I find their music too mechanical, whereas Bach's is very much alive; he uses interweaving melodies and counter melodies, which are astounding to listen to. Admittedly I don't know much classical music as in actual specific pieces and composers, but I was brought up around it, and recently I've found that I enjoy listening to those 2 in particular, but that's just me. you've got centuries of music to choose from; take your time, and dip into everything.

Frederick Chopin
Franz Schubert
Bach is great if you like the barouge scene, what symphony did you hear.

Have you any idea who it was by? Orchestral music has changed a lot through history. Baroque classical and Romantic classical music in particular are stylistically very different. So do you have any ideas for which direction we should point you in? What kind of sounds and feelings do you like from the music?

^ I like both lol, but yeah, hjust saying you heard a symphony doesn't help, but it could very well likely have been Beethoven's 9th.
