The life, success and troubles of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as told by Antonio Salieri, the contemporary composer who was insanely jealous of Mozart's talent and claimed to have murdered him.
The piece of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's music with the oboe and clarinet themes, whose score Salieri so deeply admires in the early scenes, is the Adagio, or third movement, of the Serenade No. 10 in B-flat, KV361, also known as "Gran Partita".
Mozart! Mozart, forgive your assassin! I confess, I killed you...
Mozart is walking through Vienna drinking from a green glass bottle (in the director's cut we see that he has taken it as he leaves the home of the man with the dogs, whose daughter Mozart has declined to teach.) The bottle suddenly disappears from one shot to the next and is not seen again.
