AMADEUS REMASTERED HD - MOZART INSULTS SALIERI BY PLAYING HIS OWN PIECE BETTER THAN HE DID

This is one of my favorite scenes from Amadeus. It is rare for a film to have two actors be nominated for the same award. Thomas Hulce eventually lost to F. Murray Abraham at the Oscars, but there is no denying that both gave outstanding performances.

It was said that the real Mozart had a very childlike laugh which Hulce does his best imaginative version of. The laugh is so jarring and out of the blue that it catches the Emperor off guard twice.

Mozart is either arrogant or socially unaware because he insults Salieri multiple times. As Mozart plays Salieri's little march and notes "the rest is just the same, isn't it?" you can see how maligned Salieri felt. Then to top it off Mozart declares "that doesn't quite work, now does it?" and then proceeds to take Salieri's tune and add embellishments and improvisation such that Salieri can only look on in jealousy mixed with resentment.

Salieri's jealousy and contempt for Mozart is best summed up with the line "Grazie, Signore..." as he looks up at the crucifix.

    The emperor butchered Salieri's piece, but Mozart was able to play it perfectly by only hearing it and then improvising the melody... "the rest is just the same, isn't it?" Mozart so innocent in his behavior he doesn't realize how insulting he is LOL

      このシーンはサリエリがモーツァルトの才能に『自分には決して叶わぬものがある』と屈辱を覚えて嫉妬するきっかけになったのでよく覚えています。 この映画は楽しくまた悲しかったけれどたくさんの名曲が流れて何度も見たくなる作品です。 男性が一番おしゃれに着飾っていた時代なので衣装や鬘の多彩な部分も良かったです。

    The laugh is honestly a stroke of brilliance by the actor who portrayed Mozart. It has been historically documented that Mozart did indeed have somewhat of an obnoxious laugh, but I’m sure this was taken to a whole new level. It really added something to the performance and was just funny as hell at the same time!

    I feel Salieri's pain. Reminds me of a good friend of mine who's a legit musical prodigy. A graduate of Julliard, he became an assistant professor in the music department of a prominent community college at 22, professor by 24, and head of the entire department by 27. I'm a drummer with over 20 years under my belt and no slouch myself. I broke my leg ten days before a three week long west coast tour and asked him to fill in for me. No problem he said. He listened to each song on the set list maybe three times and played them almost flawlessly at the first rehearsal. By the third rehearsal he was just as tight as I was and adding his own version of the fills I was doing, some of which I stole and still use to this day. Ain't gonna lie, I was jealous.

      @Buggaton Parallel octaves were only unacceptable when used in the context of harmony. Since he was just playing the melody, there was no voice leading and the rules of common practice didn’t apply. For example, choirs sang in unison at times, but obviously not in the same octave, given that those choirs were comprised of people with a variety of vocal ranges. Essentially, voice leading common practice only applies to voice leading-not unison.

    The stories you hear about the improvisations Mozart, Bach and all the other amazing composers of days past are mind blowing. Such a shame a tape recorder didn’t exist back then.

      I had the opportunity to listen to a presentation at the U.K. (University of Kentucky) by the widow (assisted by the youngest daughter) of Frank Zappa. The presentation covered the modern and classical music Zappa was involved in, the thousands of musical compositions he created (released and unreleased), along with his (and his youngest daughters) ability to literally see (visualize) music in colors. The most amazing thing though, was that the crux of Frank Zappa's dedication to music was this: A question was asked of the widow (to the effect of) "Did Frank write/create classical music to subsidize (pay for) his rock music?" His widow responded, "He wrote rock music to subsidize his classical music".... Let that sink in a bit!

      @Daniele Fabbro Salieri NEVER taught Mozart, who was taught by his father. He was, however, Mozart's younger son's teacher following Mozart's death and helped him get his first paying position. Constanza relied on Salieri to help them. The movie is full of junk history. No one in Vienna at the time of Mozart's death seriously thought Salieri murdered Mozart, though there was it seems an unsubstantiated rumour. Beethoven, who knew them both, was also in Vienna at the time studying there with Haydn (Vienna was an incredible place for classical music then) wrote an article for a periodical publication in which he blasted the rumours.

F Murray Abraham has the look of pure devastation as it slowly creeps in and takes him over, all while to the score of whimsical, charming music.

You can’t change the argument once your original argument gets busted. How well known were his compositions supposedly during this scene? And what about the argument I made which you conveniently side stepped about ranking how and they would react to him in person? What about jealousy or this low rank composer/ virtuoso showing them up in their own back yard? You act like you understand the history but yet you know little about the culture, the time or Mozart for that matter if you think at in his early 20s he was some sort of rock star. Even Bach in his position and hundreds of compositions didn’t get the type of recognition until years and maybe even decades after his death. Just stop.

    Not having watched this scene for 30 years or so, I must say that despite of Mozart's genius in this movie, it is not fair to not have Salieri interpret his own work (but only the king, who is a normal player and of course quite cumbersome at first). So it was no fair comparison between Salieri and Mozart in this scene. Moreover, Salieri's composition was meant as a serious march, whereas Mozart's interpretation is much more playful, better suited for an opera, but maybe not so suited to a state event held at the kings palace. It depends on the situation, of course.

    This is absolutely one of my favorite movies. All of the actors were excellent in this and from what I could research it was pretty accurate for a movie depiction, as far as his life story went. Apparently, Salieri really did rant about having killed Mozart and the rumors of this scandal where prominent. He had a really interesting life. I wish there was a way to go back in time and see what it was really like and what truly happened to him. I think he was actually poisoned, or intentionally driven mad and overworked while being ill. I bet they put something in his wine.

    The laugh sells the eccentricity of Mozart.
    His abilities transcend formality.

    You may not have noticed that Mozart turned Salieri's march into the Marriage of Figaro. When I saw this in the theater years ago, only a few people in the audience laughed at the recognition.

      Yes, in this movie, there was more professional jealousy between them than in most working relationships, but I came away from the movie thinking that what Salieri could not accept was not so much that Mozart had more of a tremendous genius for music than he did; but rather, that God should have given such tremendous talent to one who so blatantly disregarded God and even flaunted Him in so many respects.

    Don't forget when earlier in the movie, Salieri was agonizing over every note and chord. Then Wolfie comes in and not only plays it perfectly, but then improves it on the fly. Ouch.

      ​@The Death Wobble Channel Todays musicians are just as if not more talented. 7 billion people on earth, at least tens of millions are born with the aptitude, and many of them go on to do great.

      And to be fair, the movie writers actually comissioned a rather pedestrian piece, extremely simple and silly, to convey the idea of Salieri as a man with limited skills; in fact the piece they used is waaaay below the powers of Salieri's (or any of his top contemporary fellows') talent as a composer. They did it that way, so the typical movie goer, not trained in music, understands the issue. BTW, the piece that Mozart improvises over Salieri's march is not improvised at all, and it's not his. It's an extract from a work by their contemporary composer Johann Nepomuk Hummel.

      @The Death Wobble Channel 99% of us do, but I have met a few people like Mozart who just get it. I relate to Salieri in that regard, been at it for 20+ and I have met people with a quarter of the time put in who can run circles around me. Edit: for example I knew this one guy for years who never touched a guitar, he decided on a whim to not only learn how but to tackle Django Reinhardt. The dude did it in mere months. I didn't know if I was impressed or insulted, lol.
