You're searching for good classical music that is not mere "wallpaper" or Muzak schlock, yet with content that isn't so obtrusive or attention-grabbing that it distracts your study.
Here's a way to have that music without even the bother of loading or changing CDs. Click on the link below and then click on Radio Andante. The classical music is from all chronological periods. All types of instrumentation and/or vocal ensembles and soloists are represented, and not just the top 40 Billboard Classical titles. There's an occasional short promotional announcement, but nothing annoying. There's not even a DJ identifying the music. The name of the piece, composer, performer(s), and information about the CD catalog number appear on the screen as the music plays. And--it's free! (Andante.com does offer other paid subscription services, described on their website.)
