Masterpiece of composition
If you want to listen to a masterpiece in the art of musical composition, try Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony. Every theme in it is one that will stick in your mind and make you whistle it all day. It is not spectacular, since it was written "in the Italian style" of that period, but it is a marvel of efficiency and fully qualifies to be listed among the musical masterpieces of all time.
