    Try some Mozart. You can't go wrong with Mozart, it's all pretty awesome.

    If you want something a little different, try Gustav Holst, the Planets suite.

    He was late 19th - early 20th century, and this is his most famous work, each movement is inspired by a planet, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, etc. It's one of my favorites.

    I recommend Tchaikovsky's music such as valse sentimentale, autumn, Marche slave, and pretty much everything else. I love the man's compositions. Also, I enjoy many of Wagner's music such as Tannhäuser overture. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's flight of the bumblebee is a well-known piece. Now, people will say that technically these aren't classical music but rather romantic music or transitional music between classical music and romantic music. However, technically Vivaldi and Beethoven weren't pure classical music either. I like to lump classical music and romantic music together. Only classical music fanatics can tell the difference.

    Bach's Brandenburg Concertos ---seem to go hand in hand.

    Find a classical radio station in your area and let the DJ choose for you. If you listen over the internet, find a streaming radio station. I suggest KING, WETA, WHRB, WCRB, WQXR.

    Go to youtube and type in "classical music" and start listening to a variety of compositions and composers and chose for yourself which ones you like. This kind of music requires more than one listen.

    An orchestral version of 'Carmina Burana' usually goes down well.

    Bach's 'Goldberg Variations' is a very pleasant listen.

    If you want to try something a bit more modern, I'd suggest Dmitri Shostakovich's 5th Symphony.

    For a beginner, Mozart is good next step after Vivaldi. Try "Eine kleine Nachtmusik", I'm sure you'll like it
