Austrian composer Hans Rott’s name lives on thanks to his Symphony no.1 in E major and receives top billing in a new recording of the work by the Bamberger Symphoniker and its Chief Conductor Jakub Hrůša. They complete their programme with the Symphonic Prelude by Rott’s organ teacher Anton Bruckner and “Blumine” by his friend and fellow Vienna Conservatory student Gustav Mahler.

Jakub Hrůša discovered Rott’s music while searching online for information about Bruckner’s students when he was preparing to perform the composer’s Fourth Symphony with his Bamberg musicians. Rott had never crossed Hrůša’s radar before. The Czech conductor followed a link to the Symphony in E major; captivated by the music, he went on to study its score for several months. His passion for the work led to performances and DG’s recording sessions with the Bamberger Symphoniker, co-produced with BR-KLASSIK, at Bamberg’s Joseph-Keilberth-Saal.
