Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote his Hafner Symphony K. 385 in the summer of 1782 on the occasion of the elevation into the nobility of his friend and patron Sigmund Hafner. Next to the well-known movements, this version (A) also contained the March K. 408/2 (385a) and possibly a second, no longer extant minuet. Called Hafner=Musique by Mozart, the work was unquestionably a serenade at first. In early 1783 Mozart then reduced the Hafner Music for his subscription concert at the Vienna Burgtheater on 23 March 1783 to a four-movement symphony. This is the form in which the work was first printed in 1785 (Version B). For a further performance, Mozart added flute and clarinet parts to the symphony. In 1805, this version (C) was published by Andre in Offenbach, who thus began making it known.

The primary sources of the present Breitkopf Urtext edition are the autographs to K. 385 and K. 408/2 (385a). It thus becomes possible for the first time to play all three versions of the Hafner Music since the variants of Versions A and B can be easily discerned through indications in footnotes and notes in small print. Hermann Scherchen der sich als erster fur das uber einstundige farbig besetzte Werk einsetzte kam zu dem Fazit: ,,Eines der innigsten Kunstwerke voll von Sanftmut tiefstem Empfinden und alles uberstrahlendem Schonheitsgefuhl. Seit 1936 als zwei Manuskripte klosterlicher Herkunft wiederentdeckt wurden stellte sich jedoch der Musikforschung zu den ,,Septem verba die Frage: echt oder nur Sig. Pergolese zugeschrieben? Erst durch die Entdeckung von zwei neuen Quellen die eindrucksvoll dokumentieren dass es bereits Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts eine lebendige Rezeption des Werks gegeben hat und den wissenschaftlichen Vergleich aller Manuskripte konnten Autorschaft und Uberlieferung neu bewertet werden. Hermann Scherchen who was the first to take up the cause of the one-hour-plus long colorfully scored work came to the conclusion: One of the most heartfelt works of art full of gentleness and profound sensitivity. Since 1936 when two manuscripts of monastic provenance were discovered musical scholars have been asking themselves whether the ,,Septem verba is authentic or solely attributable to Sig. Pergolese. It is only thanks to the scholarly comparison of all manuscripts and to the discovery of two new sources which impressively confirm the existence of an active reception of this work in the mid 18th century that the authorship and transmission can be newly evaluated. wants to know what an artistic exchange can really mean should read this document (Nikolaus Brass).
An incredibly enlightening documentary (Peter Ruzicka).
The reader becomes the witness of an extremely exciting dialogue between two great composers (Michael Haefliger).
