Resolved Question: What classical music
I mean those who compose(d) optimistic, sunny and (or) breathtaking pieces like Hisaishi's "Ashitaka and San" or "Nausicaa" (Opening Theme).
The only one I can think of is Claude Debussy(some of his works)... Even if he's not a classical composer I would be happy if you point me to similar music. BTW I think Hisaishi was influenced by Debussy a lot.
