Also question is, why did Salieri not like Mozart?
Salieri and Mozart did not hate each other. It is a famous misconception that was going on from the time of Salieri´s senior years. Old Salieri has gone mad and senile, and his musical rival´s death affected him so much that he thought he himself killed Mozart, and he was shouting it everywhere.
Subsequently, question is, how did Salieri feel about Mozart? In 1824, attendees of a performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony were handed anonymous leaflets that described Salieri forcing Mozart to drink from a poisoned cup, and the rumor was so deliciously suggestive that it inspired a dramatic dialogue from Pushkin, which was later turned into an opera.
Similarly, it is asked, who was jealous of Mozart?
The death of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1791 at the age of 35 was followed by rumors that he and Salieri had been bitter rivals, and that Salieri had poisoned the younger composer, yet it is likely that they were, at least, mutually respectful peers.
Why did Mozart and Salieri became enemies?
Not long after Mozart's death, people began to gossip that Salieri killed Mozart with poison due to jealousy. Despite the inaccuracy of the rumors, most people remember Salieri as Mozart's enemy rather than associating him with his own work.
