James Levine Cancels Tanglewood Appearances

James Levine in action, but not this summer.
Reposted from Examiner.com
James Levine will not conduct at Tanglewood this summer.

The music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra will not be conducting the eight concerts that he was scheduled to lead this summer at the arts festival in Lenox, MA.

According to a report in today's Boston Globe, Mr. Levine was forced to withdraw from the concerts on advice from his doctors. Recent medical problems, forced Mr. Levine to miss 22 concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra over the 2009-2010 season. He had back surgery two months ago. However, he is not sufficiently recuperated to go back to work.

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats

Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
