Today - it's Hans Rott's 144th birthday - I want to give you three topical news:

 

1. Broadcasting of the Symphony in E major

 
On Monday, 5th August 2002 during the Mattinata Radio Stephansdom will be broadcasting
 
 
 
    Rott, Hans (1858-1884)

Everyone who lives in Vienna and surroundings has the great chance to listen to it without buying the CD.
 

2. Premiere of the "Pastoralen Vorspiels" already 1995 ?!

Until today we thought that Rott's "Pastorales Vorspiel" had its premiere in 2000.

But it looks as if it has been played for the first time already on March 26th, 1995 in the Barbican Centre. As far as we know it has been performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and Michael Tilson Thomas. Supposedly they played as well the Scherzo from Rott's Symphony No. 1.

Is there anyone who can give more details on this performance? 

 

3. New Artikel concerning Hans Rott

The feature of the German "neue musikzeitung" (issue August/September) deals with Hans Rott:

 „Von dem Manne werden Sie noch Großes hören“ - Der Wahnsinnige und seine Symphonie: die Tragödie des Bruckner-Schülers Hans Rott

A very interesting article written by Erwin Horn.
