He studied conducting with his father Nikolai Anosov at the Moscow Conservatory and piano with Lev Oborin. Already known for having conducted Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker ballet at the Bolshoi Theatre at the age of 20, he quickly established his reputation. He premiered many works of Soviet composers, including Edison Denisov's Sun of the Incas (1964)[1], as well as giving the Russian premiere of Benjamin Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream and the Western premiere of Dmitri Shostakovich's Fourth Symphony at the 1962 Edinburgh Festival. Rozhdestvensky is considered a versatile conductor and a highly cultured musician with a supple stick technique.

In moulding his interpretations, he gives a clear idea of the structural outlines and emotional content of a piece, combined with a performing style which melds logic, intuition and spontaneity Orchestra tenures * 1951-1961 Orchestra of the Bolshoi Theatre (conductor) * 1961-1974 Symphony Orchestra of All-Union Radio and Television (Moscow) * 1964-1970 Orchestra of the Bolshoi Theatre (principal conductor) * 1974-1985 Chamber Theatre Orchestra * 1974-1977 Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (artistic director) * 1978-1981 BBC Symphony Orchestra (chief conductor) * 1980-1982 Vienna Symphony * 1983-1991 USSR Ministry of Culture Symphony Orchestra * 1992-1995 Royal Stockholm Philharmonic With the USSR Ministry of Culture Symphony Orchestra he recorded all the symphonies of Dmitri Shostakovich, Alexander Glazunov, Anton Bruckner, Alfred Schnittke, Arthur Honegger, and Vaughan Williams.
