Math game that featured Bach and Mozart

Around 1995 I played a game on the Mac in school that was for educational purposes, supposedly for the purposes of drilling math skills, and had Mozart Symphony no. 40 (1st movement and but I think 3rd as well), Bach BWV 999, and possibly some Paganini as well, as background music. Do you know what it was?

And remember: external forces are never to blame.

I've always thought King Missile's Failure was a pretty good depiction of the kind of intrusive, self-defeating thoughts that characterize depression. The recent FPP'd game Depression Quest does something similar. What are some other works that are reminiscent of the experience of having depression or another mental illness (as opposed to depicting characters with the illness?)

Annoying Thing

OK.... After the mid-song break in the Axel F Crazy Frog remix, the music is temporarily stolen from a game, probably on the Commodore 64. What game? Also, there was a cult website using the original game's music along with epilepsy-inducing multicoloured pop-up windows. Where is that site? Inquiring minds need to know.
