Notes & Reviews:

"Rozhdestvensky is not only a superb ballet conductor -- his years at the Bolshoi in the 60s taught him to keep his tempos inviting and his rhythms light on their feet -- but he is a superb interpreter of these scores. With the BBC Symphony -- his orchestra from 1978 through 1981 -- Rozhdestvensky makes The Nutcracker sound less like a beauty pageant and more like the apotheosis of the fairy tale, The Bolt sound less like a Soviet screed and more like the epitome of ironic humor, and Scènes de ballet sound less like Stravinsky's attempt at writing for Broadway -- which it was -- and more like his attempt at composing a piece of pure classical dance -- which it might have been. Recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall, BBC's sound is cool, clear and colorful." -All Music
