I know a lot of people think of Falco and 'Rock Me Amadeus', when they see the name. However, I'm thinking of the film with F Murray Abraham and Tom Hulce. Many people, musicians and historians alike, were outraged by Milos Forman's film based on Peter Shaffer's play of the same name. They may have played fast and loose with historical fact when they hint that Salieri was Mozart's murderer. However, Mozart may well have been the boorish fellow depicted on screen. Clearly this is Moffat's opinion, when he and four others attempt Mozart's canon for 6 voices with only five persons in Chapter Thirty Two of Gibbous House
'My grasp of the German language was sufficient to discern the title as being 'Leck mich im Arsch.'
