And there could hardly be a better start into 2004 than with the world premiere of the Symphony in A-flat major for String Orchestra in Switzerland. Here you will find the traditional list of the relevant dates.

The "klang:punkte" magazine (spring 2003 issue) of the music publishers Doblinger features an article on Hans Rott worth reading:
