    That's an almost impossible question to answer. It's like asking 'what food should I eat', there are thousands of options. There are so many types of what people call Classical Music. It isn't just orchestral music.

    As has been said above, too broad a subject for 100 CDs let alone 1...

    Try BBC iplayer Radio for Radio 3, Classic FM, and even Spotify if you have it. There are plenty of play lists there too.

    Googling 'classical music primers' brings up the usual pieces.

    Enjoy.

    I started in a random manner having little understanding of what I was buying. My first purchase was of Barenboim playing a selection of Beethoven Piano Sonatas and Shostakovitch's 15th Symphony [Haitink], because they were the only classical LPs in the sale at the local shop. Over the years I have enjoyed exploring music for myself. It has taken me to places the reviewers and critics [and compilation makers] are unlikely to go. That said, the CD you mention is as good a place to start as any.
