i want someone who’s never seen b99 to explain this screencap
is this live action cowboy bebop
go in the corner and think about what you said
Don’t forget that the church was literally so impressed they gave him a medal instead of imprisoning him or executing him
Mozart only needed to hear a piece once to play it better than the original. And on top of that, they believed all his music to have been created by someone else, not this kid, so they locked him in a tower for a period of time (forget how long) with only music paper. When they came back all the paper was filled and he had written on the walls as well. AND ALL THE MUSIC WAS PHENOMENAL. how much more perfect can you get than Mozart? If you want to know more: watch the movie Amadeus. It’s historically accurate but also funny at times. Watch. it.
so he was the first to illegally download a song
And for those of you that would like to hear the first illegally downloaded song that the Vatican kept a secret for so long because it was “too beautiful for human knowledge” You can find it here.
In response to the third comment, Amadeus is not historically accurate by any means outside of the fact that Salieri and Mozart were both court composers under Joseph II’s court in Vienna and Mozart’s musical composition talents. In life the two were actually fairly friendly with each other and even collaborated on a cantata for voice and piano together, Per la Ricperata Salute di Ophelia, which sadly has been lost. Mozart’s letters even imply that Salieri was a regular at performances of Mozart’s operas and the most enthusiastic supporter of them in the audience. Salieri even ended up mentoring Mozart’s son after the latter’s passing
The rumor after Mozart’s death was that Salieri had killed him out of jealousy due to the fact that as court composers they were often competing for work, a rumor that Salieri vehemently refuted until his dying day.
I like how his reactions show a progression of emotions from “I am satisfied working on this project” to “what am I doing with my life”
