For the past two hundred years, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's death has been shrouded in mystery. Some say his great rival, Antonio Salieri, or the Freemasons murdered him. Others say he was simply exhausted. And some believe he died from sickness.

Antonio Salieri was the court composer in Austria. Shortly after Mozart’s death, gossip spread that in great envy, he murdered Mozart. In his last years, Salieri even confessed to killing Mozart, but he was very ill, and his ramblings were influenced by his insanity.

Am I really uneducated, or is this question fairly specific?

Wow, they didn't even mention that guy in 'Amadeus'.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 2/9/04 - 7:22:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know...but Mozart was so sexy.

They SO mentioned Salieri in "Amadeus". Where were you? The movie depicted pretty much what the above story says. Mozart was very ill, Salieri saw him on his death bed...Salieri confessed to a priest later in the midst of insanity. I think Salieri did it. He was a jealous old dog.

Trips, you crack me up.

It's my understanding that nothing but rumor has ever linked Salieri to the death of Mozart, and that even the movie was based on a historical novel that made no claims to legitimacy.

No... not at all... thats a myth
