I feel like Zappa was probably making the distinction between "classical music" and "orchestral music", with the former (in his mind) referring to a very formulaic and staid approach to symphony and Romantic composition

I think he realized that he wasn't the incredible genius he thought he'd be. Criticising what other people create is always an indication that someone is unhappy with his own work

intrinsically all music is formulaic. there's even a formula for experimental music: experiment

Isaac Powell

Most composers up to the 18th century were very much formula people--their music was product commissioned by a king or the church for some event. The Romantic composers are often seen as more substantial because their music was personal and often based around struggles such as Chopin's chronic tuberculosis.

what's elitist and snobbish is projecting your insecurities so hard that you think your music taste matters to anyone but yourself

Why would classical music be elitist and snobbish? Anyone can download and listen to a classical record these days. They're even streamable on YouTube with millions of views.
