9780140481600: Amadeus (Penguin Plays)

This play takes the probable apocryphal legend that Mozart was poisoned by a rival composer, Antonio Salieri, a relatively moral and highly-regarded court musician and teacher who could not live with the fact that God had given him the power to appreciate the greatest music but had chosen such a horrible little sod as Wolfgang as his literal instrument.
