If you would like an introduction to classical symphonies of Haydn that is a lot of fun, listen to the barnyard sounds in the Hen Symphony (No. 83) or the loud chords of the Surprise Symphony (No. 94) designed to startle royal audiences. Haydn wrote 104 Symphonies. You may also want to try the Trumpet Concerto or the D Major Harpsichord Concerto, also heard for piano. Other important works to add to your collection are Haydn's oratorios, The Creation and The Seasons.
