Mozart! Mozart, forgive your assassin! I confess, I killed you...
At the beginning of "Amadeus", the dying Salieri hums the first bars of "Eine kleine Nachtmusik" to the confessor - probably the most immediately recognizable tune Mozart ever wrote. The joke is that the confessor, who knows nothing of Salieri's music, delights in knowing "Eine kleine", and continues humming the melody back to Salieri, to Salieri's disgust. But in 1823, even though Mozart had been dead over 30 years, this music was unknown to the public. It was only published in 1827, by Mozart's widow, who was then still alive.
