Evening Masterwork: Mozart’s Serenade No. 7

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Serenade No. 7 in D Major, “Haffner,” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Evening Masterwork for September 4, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

Mozart’s Serenade No. 7 is the first of two serenades that Mozart composed for the Haffner family. This eight-movement work, in particular, was composed in Salzburg in July of 1776 for a Haffner wedding. And for historians looking back, the consensus is that Mozart’s “Haffner” Serenade was his first breakout work for orchestra. It’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
