All classical will have some climaxes. If I had to pick 2: Debussy and Faure. On Debussy everyone will vote for the dutiot/Montreal(2 cd set), which is good. But if you're looking for a smaller quiter(smaller orchestra) sound and is well conducted take a look at Tortelier/Ulster(4cd set). Like I say the Dutoit has much more dynamics in the recording, so may not be as "soothing" as the Tortelier. On the Faure, very easy going and enjoyable classical music, conducted by Plasson/Toulouse Orchestra. MY first choice would be Ravel, Daphne et Chloe and Mother Goose Suite, Skrowaczewski/Minnesota. Do expect some energy in this music at times.
