The Bottom Line: Despite the extraordinary claims made by his partisans, Hans Rott’s (1858-84) music reveals little individuality or self-evident skill. This first volume (of two) contains a lot of routine stuff, much of it incomplete, alongside one promising, fully realized work: the Pastoral Prelude of 1880. Performances and sonics are excellent, but you will have to decide if the music warrants repeated listening.
