Much of this music dates from his Salzburg years, and was written for friends such as the Haffners. Eine kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music) was written in Vienna in 1791, possibly as music for one of his closest male friends, Gottfried von Jacquin, at whose house the Mozarts enjoyed regular parties. This is utterly unclouded music, full of grace, wit, elegance, mirth and affection. It is comforting to know that, for all his troubles, Mozart retained his capacity for happiness.
