Dear, sweet, mad, talented Amadeus, wrote beautiful music. There is a movie that tells the story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as told by his peer, and secret rival Antonio Salieri. If you’d like to see the film: Watch HERE 🎇 http://goo.gl/UtjZna.
The Requiem was composed because of a commission from an intermediary for Count von Walsegg, for dubious intentions. The Count asked Mozart to write a composition so that he could claim it as his own to commemorate the death of his wife. Mozart, a young composer, 35, and a genius, started writing his first setting of the Mass for the Dead. He completed 2/3 of the work when “he died after composing eight bars of the Requiem’s Lacrimosa. The last words he set to music was “that day of tears and mourning”.” In essence he composed his own Requiem.(http://www.theguardian.com/music/tomserviceblog/2011/dec/16/mozart-s-requiem-mysteries)
