Haydn's Symphony No. 44 came to be known as the Mourning Symphony, because the Austrian composer found the Adagio so successful that he dreamed of it being played at his funeral. This wish was not ultimately respected, and it was in fact Mozart's Requiem that was played at his funeral when he died in 1809.
Mozart worked night and day on this requiem but died before he was able to complete it. Other composers, principally students of Mozart, completed the work at the instigation of Mozart's wife. In part due to the success of the film Amadeus, which is based more on Pushkin's tragedy Mozart and Salieri than on historical fact, Mozart's Requiem is today one of his best-known and best-loved compositions.
