Even at his death, he died a poor man,“Mozart died with substantial debts, of which the greatest, significantly, were to the tailr, the apothecary, and the decorator.” This speaks volumes to the nature of vainness that Mozart indulged in....   [tags: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Requiem]

As an artistic endeavor, Amadeus is a triumph. Particularly stunning is F. Murray Abraham's performance as the tortured Court Composer Antonio Salieri. Abraham portrays a talented yet mediocre musician who, having revered God all his life, shows us clearly that "pride goeth before the fall". It is Salieri's greed for fame, and pride in his own "moral goodness" that lead him to denounce Mozart as a "fiend"....   [tags: Papers]
