Fun Fact

Beethoven visited the Netherlands once. In 1783, he was twelve years old at the time, he gave a performance for the court of Stadholder William V in The Hague. On his return to Bonn, he told his neighbor, "Those Dutch are real penny thieves, they only have an eye for money there. They won't see me back there!"

RO QUIZ

Where in Vienna did Mozart's Haffner Symphony premiere?
  • Musikverein

    Good answer: Burgtheater

    The first performance of Mozart's Haffner Symphony took place at the Burgtheater, on March 23, 1783. This theater stood on Michaelerplatz, against the Imperial Hofburg, until 1888. It was an "all Mozart concert" anyway, with piano concertos, arias and improvisations by his hand. Collaboration was provided by soprano Aloysia Lange, sister-in-law of Mozart's wife Constanze.
