"Classical music" is a very nice term.
Another possibility is "highbrow music". As you can see from the definition below from MERRIAM WEBSTER UNABRIDGED, a highbrow is a somewhat arrogant individual who may flaunt his education, tiesto culture, family connectons, etc. The term is derrogatory but not vulgar.
