Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's most famous operas:Le Nozze di Figaro (c. 1786)The Magic Flute (c. 1791)Don Giovanni (c.1787)Cosi fan tutte (c. 1790)

The movie portrayed and intense competition between Salieri and Mozart. However, there is no evidence to suggest that the two men ever met.The Requiem Mass in C minor was commissioned by Count Franz von Walsegg, not Salieri in disguise.Though it is likely Mozart had help transcribing the Requiem, it was not Salieri who aided him. Instead, a student of Mozart helped him to transcribe the work before his death.

Myths from Amadeus

Salieri from Amadeus

Mozart was a 2nd Degree Free Mason. Free mason symbolism is expressed in almost all of his music, however the largest amount of symbolism can be found in his opera, The Magic Flute. The pentagon is the symbol for the 2nd degree.

Elsewhere in Music...Franz Joseph HaydnSome of Haydn's most famous pieces are the Minuet of the Ox, the Rasierquartet, the Kaiserquartett, The Creation and The Seasons. Mozart and Haydn were great friends, indicated by the affection in their letters. They were a source of inspiration for each other, as Mozart has been quoted saying, "From Papa Haydn I learned all I know about string quartets." Haydn is known for adding extra instrumentation into the orchestra and his development of string quartets. Haydn is regarded today as one of the greatest composers in all of music history.
