Mozart's "Haffner" Symphony began as a serenade written in 1782 to accompany festivities in Salzburg at the ennoblement of Sigmund Haffner, a boyhood friend of the composer. Mozart later turned the serenade into a symphony; the new version was performed at Mozart's first public concert in Vienna, on 23 March 1783. In 1865 the manuscript was presented to King Ludwig II of Bavaria on his twentieth birthday. The royal gift was housed in a case of turquoise velvet and chased silver with the king's initial, the royal crown, and the Bavarian arms embossed in silver on the lid.
