Performed during his tenure as Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony, the Proms performances featured on this DVD represent Gennadi Rozhdestvensky at the highest point of his relationship with the orchestra. One of the premier conductors of Russian repertoire, Rozhdestvensky is well known for his interpretations of ballet music – this performance of the second act of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker perfectly demonstrates his affinity with the genre.

The ICA Classics Legacy series presents a collection of historic performances by some of the world’s greatest artists. These performances are released on DVD for the first time, incorporating rare archive footage that has been expertly and lovingly restored.
