Notes & Reviews:

Performed during his tenure as Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony, the BBC Proms performances featured on this DVD represent Gennadi Rozhdestvensky at the highest point of his relationship with the orchestra.

The orchestra plays very well... Wind and brass soloists are excellent... Picture quality is very good as well.

Rozhdestvensky, master of Russian ballet, in glorious performances of Russian classics from the 1981 Proms.

American Record Guide
Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker music has to be as close to perfection as any human creation has come... Rozhdestvensky... lively interpretation is beautifully expressive, with careful yet fuss-free attention to the wealth of detail in Tchaikovsky's score... the recorded sound is OK. Ruslan and Ludmilla sounds distinctly monophonic, but the rest of the program seems to be stereo - perhaps only the quality of an FM broadcast, but more than serviceable.
