I'm assuming this is referring to classical music in general, not the Classical period.
  1. Mozart
  2. J. S. Bach
  3. Dvorak
  4. Ravel
  5. Tchaikovsky
With honourable mentions to Beethoven and Haydn.

Hmm, hard to say, but based on the number of CDs of each composer I own ...

1. Beethoven
2. Bach
3. Shostakovich
4. Mozart
5. Prokofiev

I would also put Debussy and Ravel up there but I don't happen to own large numbers of CD's from them. They produced fewer numbers of works than the above guys, which is part of the reason why.

No one captured humanity like Tchaikovsky did, or humankind like Mozart. That said, only the former is in my top 5.

1. Tchaikovsky
2. Rachmaninov
3. Beethoven
4. Schubert
5. Elgar
