Symphonies are the most complex of musical compositions, usually with 4 or 5 movements.  They are music to "kick back" and concentrate on.  However, many also are very accessible.  I've selected four of my favorites for this list.

Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 "Pastoral" (5 Movements, about 45 minutes)

Dvorak: Symphony No. 9 "From the New World" (4 Movements, about 45 Minutes)

Lalo: Symphonie Espagnole (5 Movements, about 35 Minutes)

Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 4 "Italian" (4 Movements, about 30 Minutes)
