I listen to everything,but I enjoy a lot of classical music. It started for me when I was a kid because I had to hear this album my dad had with a breaching whale on the cover. I was a sucker for that.
To this day Alan Hovhaness is a favorite of mine, though he may be a little out there for some. That first piece I heard is still my favorite piece of classical music.
"And god created great whales" is a piece for orchestra with whale sounds. He worked with an oceanographer he knew and wrote the music to match the meaning of the sounds. Humpbacks singing, Orcas on the hunt and Sperm whales going deep for squid. I love it.

We play Pistol and we encourage the Few despite the discouragement of the Many.
