From letters from Wolfgang Amadé Mozart to his sister Maria Anna ("Nannerl")

“Nannerl” and “Wolferl” are the focus of a collage consisting of letters and of music performed on the composer’s original instruments. The relationship between Mozart and his sister Maria Anna Walburga Ignatia (four and a half years his senior, later Baroness von Berchtold zu Sonnenburg) is brought to life through renderings by violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing, pianist Marie Sophie Hauzel and actor Adele Neuhauser – an enthralling, insightful trio... as are the guests Rolando Villazón has selected for his series of discussions, to elucidate the various aspects of the musico drammatico that was Wolfgang Amadé Mozart.
