Classical music, like any other genre, is all over the map. I have a few CD's of various composers and some I like and others make me cringe.

I prefer something along the lines of Mozart because the music tends to be separated out so I can mentally track it. There can be a whole room full of musicians playing but structurally they are grouped so I can pick out specific melodies and beats.

I don't like music that ends up in some kind of individual competition for attention.

However, I HATE opera. Upper register opera even more. it all sounds like a cat kicking contest to me.
