Salieri is at first sullen as well as withdrawn, yet at some point warms to the priest and introduces into a lengthy "admission" regarding his relationship with Mozart.
Salieri takes place telling his tale via the evening, and also into the following day. He thinks back concerning his youth, especially concerning his commitment to God, and his love for songs, regardless of his papa's plans for him to go into trade. He pledged to God to stay celibate as a sacrifice if he could possibly somehow commit his life to music, and viewed his daddy's subsequent death as magnificent treatment to make this feasible.
Years later on, Salieri belongs to the 18th-century social elite in Vienna, the "city of musicians". He is appreciated, monetarily prosperous, and has been assigned court composer for Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II (Jeffrey Jones). He is material, as well as thinks his successes are God's benefits for his holiness.
