Note to You, A; Mozart And The Haffners

07/11/1999

If you wanted to get ahead as a musician back in Mozart’s time, you had to make friends with wealthy people. And for Mozart, the Haffner family always came through. They were generous patrons, commissioning some of his finest works. Host Virginia Eskin pays homage to the Haffners today on ANTY.
