More Levine/BSO News

Not the good kind, either. Parterre Box reports that James Levine has cancelled his remaining performances this season with the BSO. Those are concerts through March 19 and included performances in NY and at the Kennedy Center.

This is following last week's cancellation of performances of Mahler's 9th, which were taken over by the young assistant conductor Sean Newhouse. A friend who was there says the first performance was just fine. (My own aside: I appreciate Jeremy Eichler's care in writing his review; he is scrupulously fair to Newhouse and places the debut in the appropriate context.)
