If youre unfamiliar with the genre, it's probably a good idea to start by looking for good quality recordings of the more famous stuff from the masters; Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi, Chopin, etc. This may sound obvious, but they are popular for a reason and I don't believe in making a virtue out of obscurity.

Though I like piano solo/concertos more so performers would be nice too.
Thing that makes it hard for me to get into classical is that it relies more on the performers rather than the composers because well, they're dead. :P
