Catalogue Number: 01W002
Description: The symphony is almost over-recorded now, 31 years after its first performance, but this is the first appearance of the nine-minute symphonic movement which dates from 1878, the same year that Rott began work on his only completed symphony. Only one other recording exists of the 1874-75 string symphony, which has only three completed movements and a few sketches of a fourth. Gürzenich Orchester Köln; Christopher Ward.
