Vienna performance review, 28th April 2014:
“Mit Gennady Rozhdestvensky, der würdige 83 Jahre alt ist, stand ein berühmter Meister der russischen Schule am Dirigentenpult, der es keinesfalls an Temperament missen ließ – das Orchester schillerte in allen, zumal dunklen Klangfarben.” Der Online Merker, 29.4.14
