  • because that what was selling in his era. if you read his biogaphy he wa very peculiar and sexually perverse. probably if you left him write whatever he wanted we'd have some very crazy works. except if he used music as a form of catharsis to balance his crazy life.

    • also we got to face the fact your question is wrong. are all his pieces happy? is the requiem happy? and even those you see as happy, is that just projection of your own psychology and character?

    • Show All
