Notes and Editorial Reviews

When Empress Maria Theresa arranged the marriage of her son Ferdinand to Maria Beatrice d‘Este, it was a matter of course that the wedding festivities in Milan in October 1771 were to include two large-scale opera performances. The commission went to two musicians who could not have been more different: the 72 years old, highly respected opera composer Johann Adolph Hasse, and the fifteen year old wunderkind Mozart, who was responsible for composing a so-called “festa teatrale“. Mozart was also instructed to write the ballet music or “Ballo.”

As fate would have it, nothing remained of this music beside the bass part. The research of Mozart specialist Wolfgang Plath enabled the Russian composer Anton Safronov to reconstruct
