Hans Rott - Symphony in E major

Rott (1858-1884) was an Austrian composer, who tragically died at age 25 after a long spell of insanity. His brief output was admired by Bruckner and Mahler, and indeed, his only completed symphony of 1880 foreshadows Mahler's works to some extent. Relevant links below.
