I'm very bad with names here, and not overly knowledgeable. A good place to start would be with well known pieces of music that way you can familiarise yourself with what you most likely already know and learn who composed what.
I've got Soulseek, but no classical music in my folders so I dont have anything useful to share lol.
A few suggestions to start off with are:
Greig - "In The Hall Of The Mountain King"
Carmina Burana (Carl Orff) - "O Fortuna" (you will definately know this one! It was in Excalibur and Jackass The Movie-the slow mo scene with the shopping trolley)
Ravel - "Bolero" (one of the greatest pieces of music ever ice skated to in all time!!)

Tchaikovsky's Ballets are also good. Familiar and exceptionally beautiful. Look for any in Swan Lake ("Dance of the Little Swans") , The Nutcracker ("Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy", "Dance of the Reed Flutes") or even Sleeping Beauty. Perhaps if you like Tchaikovsky also "Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture".
