Is it neglected?  What's your criteria for that?
No one plays Rosner's music and less than a handful of his symphonies are available..

The first part of your statement is-very sadly correct- but there are now four of his eight symphonies on disc and these are the four later, mature symphonies. Nos. 1-4, which have not been recorded, date from 1961-64 when Rosner was a student aged 16-19 years of age.

......and there are plans to record more of Rosner's music, including his very substantial Requiem of 1973.

I understand that the juvenilia work either does not exist (destroyed by composer) or not in a performance state.  It sounded like we'll never get No. 1-4 or the first piano concerto.
