I enjoy Beethoven's 7th symphony for its overwhelming optimism and musicality, written by a completely deaf man tormented by a constant loud shrieking noise in his ears.

Listening to this makes me realise how blessed I am being health,y and puts all my petty problems in to perspective.

As a close second is Anton Bruckner's 9th symphony, written by a dying man guiding the listener through the depth of his agony with the most brutal dissonant cord imaginable as climax of the final movement, with the view of the promised land on the horizon finally attained by the gentle and uplifting coda.
