I hesitated between Schubert and Mozart but eventually the operas, the concertos and the violin sonatas made the difference.

Yeah, if only Schubert had composed some concerti...

but I must say we listened to a bit of Aida in my music history class at one point and I was soon searching for the emergency exits!  ::) ;D
Small mistake here, must have been his opera 'Salida', not Aida:
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948
