HANS ROTT

Mahler called Rott “a musician of genius … who died unrecognised …on the very threshold of his career. … What music has lost in him cannot be estimated. Such is the height to which his genius soars in … [his] Symphony [in E major] , which he wrote as 20-year-old youth and makes him … the Founder of the New Symphony as I see it.” ( Wikipedia )

Next week sees Christoph König return to Spain and conduct for the first time in his career the relatively little known Symphony in E Major by Hans Rott. Christoph König in his own words: “I have been waiting quite a bit to conduct this magnificent symphony. It is not easy to find an orchestra and institution willing to undertake such an enterprise, and I am very glad that the Real Filharmonia de Galicia has granted my wish to programme it. I am very glad and looking forward to it.”
