Carey on Levine Resigning from BSO

Please check out Christian Carey's article on the sad news of James Levine's decision to resign from the Boston Symphony Orchestra position. Christian's an excellent writer and he's followed Levine's tenure at the BSO more closely than I have. Here's the link:

Christian Carey: File Under at Sequenza21.

I know that Levine commissioned a number of symphonies from Charles Wuorinen, an important teacher of mine at Rutgers, a stalwart serialist and a terrific composer. That alone has kept Levine's estimation high in my book.

Levine intends to keep his other job at the Met. His career over recent years has been plagued with illnesses and many thought he might step down from both posts before now.
