Andreas Jetter transcribes for organ and plays the Symphony in E Major by Hans Rott (1858-1884), a Viennese contemporary of Gustav Mahler and fellow student at the Vienna Conservatory, but two years older than Mahler. Of this work, Mahler said, "Hans Rott was really the founder of the new symphony as I see it." Per Rott's instructions upon his death at the early age of 25, all of his works with exception of the Symphony were destroyed, including a presumed group of organ works, as Rott worked primarily as an organist. Andreas Jetter realizes his transcription on the large and orchestral 1925 Steinmeyer organ of 86 ranks at Corpus Christi Church in Berlin, restored in 2018.
