Haydn symphonic output - a representations of resilience and mindfulness. Maintaining good nature and humour and a positive attitude irrespective of life struggles. Any negative thoughts and feelings are accepted and not challenge and are recognised as mere transient emotion that flows in and out during the movement.
Beethoven - symphony no. 3 - movement 1 - represents struggle, movement 2 - funeral of self from the struggle, movement 3 rebirth, final movement - rebirth via a Haydn-esque mindfulness thinking
Beethoven - string quartet no. 6 movement 1 - bunch of friends discussing politics in a noisy cafe, that has argument and then counterargument that descent into full blown heated argument in the development section before calm heads intervene and settle things down and then the recapitulation represents a more civil discussion where the heated topic is bubbling in the background but people were able to discuss the issue with their tempers controlled
Beethoven string quartet no. 9 movement 4 - flights of the bumblebees (sorry Rimsky Korsakov but Beethoven did it better)
Mozart - sinfonia concertante movement 1 cadence material - someone reaching spiritual transcendence/epiphany/nirvana
Mahler - symphony no. 6 movement 4 - what's impressive about the 3 hammer blows of death. Is that you can feel the disorientation after each blow and the person heroically trying to pick himself of the floor before another blows strikes until the final killing blow. It's like one of those slow motion heroic death
Shostakovich - symphony no. 5 - movement 3 - a person in a complete utter state of numbing shock and disbelief at the atrocity they are witnessing. It's interesting that despite the audience bawling in tears at the premier, the music lacks the emotional melodrama expected for that reaction (unlike the adagio by barber). It's really captures a sense of emotional numbness of trying to contain emotional expression (as that is probably dangerous) rather than expression itself.
Berlioz - symphony fantastique - witches sabbath - Produces imagery of entertaining but tacky b-grade horror movie. The discontinuity of the music of how elements just jumps in and out makes it hard to take it seriously
