I'm not a big fan of classical music. It's boring, and for the most part its movements unfold at 10x the pace as compared to a typical pop song.

I am intrigued by energetic piano, violin, and orchestral pieces though, ones that avoid excessive repetition and which have an energetic mathematical vitality to them...suggestions?

That's largely up to personal preference. The conductor and the label matter just as much as the orchestra does.

You'll want to study up on reviews of the different performances and their specific differences if you want to make a specific decision on which record to get on quality grounds.
