IMHO less talented than Svetlanov .However a prominent conductor and essential for XX Century russian repertoire.
Talented in different ways. Svetlanov was a fine pianist and recorded the Medtner violin and piano sonatas whose parts are anything but "accompaniments"; he also gave one of the finest performances of Elgar's Second Symphony that it's ever been my good fortune to hear.
Dear Ahinton
Also Rozhdestvensky was a pianist.IMHO  Ministry of Culture Orchestra was not at height of State Symphony and Rozhdestvensky was more oriented towards modernists composers.However i don't  want deny his skills
