Dear Mr. Hayford:

Re: your review, Mozart and Salieri ["Stretched Thin," January 16]: "untrained"? Mozart had years of technical training by his father Leopold, the court composer/kapellmeister at Salzburg.

Let's hope your knowledge of the theater is greater than this. Yikes!

Justin Hayford replies:

You're correct. I meant to refer to his natural genius. It was a poor choice of words.
