Work introduction

Born in 1858, in Vienna. Died in the Lower Austrian Lunatic Asylum in 1884 – these are two cornerstones of a life that was much too short. In between, Hans Rott dedicated himself tirelessly to working on compositions. He enjoyed some success until Johannes Brahms rejected his Symphony, which plunged him into deep confusion. Rott studied together with Gustav Mahler at the Musikakademie and greatly influenced him. The Pastorales Vorspiel shows Rott's development on his path to the symphony. The first, longer part is both mournful and bucolic. After about 10 minutes the scene changes: the strings strike up a fugal theme, the brass join in and the motoric, Baroque-style music leads to a celebratory apotheosis, with which the piece finishes.
