With the Russian Federation Academic Symphony Orchestra (formerly the USSR State Symphony Orchestra) as well as other orchestras such as the NHK Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre National de France he restored poignant urgency to the symphonies of Mahler and Tchaikovsky. He sparked the magic of Russian opera with his interpretations of Rimsky-Korsakov' s The Golden Cockerel and The Maid of Pskov at the Bolshoi. And besides, he had the great Russian Federation Symphony Orchestra (then the USSR State Symphony) at his disposal. He was really a quietist, a sort of a 20th Century Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky who was, in terms of mannerism and musical thought, went neither here or there, and rather unapologetic in maintaining the profound virtues of musical art deeply rooted in Russian music while not paying much lip service to Socialist Realist policies.
