If the music is from a recording made in recent years, you'd be infringing the copyright in the recording by using even 50 seconds in your video.  You'd need to get permission from the copyright holder.

The other option is you can hire your musicians and create your own soundtrack, if you have the money.  The music itself, if it's one of the "standard" classical repertoire, is in the public domain.  Where are you located?  I can give you some pointers on where to look for musicians...

Based on the facts you've given, then, the short answer is, "no, you can't use the music without permission from the copyright holder."
