No wonder LVB wrote such dramatic symphonies. He suffered a host of illnesses while alive. The life expectancy in those days was dramatically short relative to today. Most people don't realize, even 100 years ago, half the distance to LVB's death, life expectancy in the US was in the mid 50s. So, there's a reason to keep paying for those hefty health insurance premiums. They pay for a longer life, and hopefully a happier one than Beethoven's.
